Our art collection has over 1300 works. These are mainly by Scottish artists and cover the period, 1950 to the present day. As well as having significant bodies of work from established figures like Alan Davie, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Barbara Rae we also support emerging and mid- career artists by adding to our collection each year. Many works have been gifted or loaned and others have been purchased. All require a level of care, and we need to meet the on-going collection costs relating to conservation and maintenance, curation, insurance and storage.
Adopting an artwork is a way of getting to know the collection and contributing to its future development. For £3 per month you can adopt an artwork whether for yourself, or as a gift.
