An exhibition of Royal Scottish Academicians considering the significance of island life, culture and landscape in Scottish art.

With almost 800 islands, Scotland is defined by its existence within an archipelago. The elemental landscape of the islands, with their geographical and meteorological extremes, make them a compelling subject for artists. The exhibition will look at the specificities of language, music and oral tradition in the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland, as well as the experience of living within island communities.

Exhibiting artists: Anne Bevan, Kate Downie, Lennox Dunbar, Paul Furneaux, Henry Kondracki, Marian Leven, Will Maclean, Keith McIntyre, Frances Pelly, Barbara Rae, Frances Walker, Arthur Watson.
