A new exhibition opens at the University’s Gateway Galleries next week (Friday 19 May 2006).
‘Select: Scottish Art from the Boswell Collection’ showcases the University’s collection of modern Scottish art. On display are exciting and innovative works by nationally renowned artists including Elizabeth Blackadder, Calum Colvin, John Bellany, Will Maclean, Callum Innes and Alison Watt.
A busy programme of educational events accompanies the exhibition. Families can try their hand at printmaking on Saturday 20 May (10.30am-12.30pm or 2-4pm), under the guidance of expert printmakers. School holiday workshops are held on Mondays (12-3pm), in the June half- term (5 June), and in July and August. Why not drop into the gallery and make a wandering ink picture or a mini museum? All events are free: children must be accompanied by an adult.
The exhibition marks the 10th anniversary of the Boswell Collection, established by American Margery Boswell in honour of her late husband, Harry, to mark the couple’s interest in Scottish history, culture and art, and their ancestral links with Fife. The couple’s family continue to support the Collection, enabling the University to make annual purchases of Scottish art, which is used in the teaching of Art History.
