What art have I seen? Maclaurin Festival

Posted in Exhibitions by chrisfremantle on January 3, 2015

The whole of the Maclaurin Collection is on show at the moment including early 20th C British artists influenced by Futurism, St Ives School, every notable Scottish artist from the second half of the Century, the Bestiary, and really good work by Nash, Deacon, Hamilton Finlay and Maclean. Interspersed are works purchased from the Maclaurin Schools Competition. Well worth checking out. Not sure the recent acquisitions stand up well. Hopefully seeing the whole collection together will inspire the Trustees to be more careful and ambitious in their future purchases and perhaps learn from the founding curator and used exhbition offers and residencies to facilitate acquisitions. ‘s piece on the show with Mike Bailey
