This exhibition showcases the best of Perth Museum and Art Gallery’s permanent collection of modern and contemporary Scottish art.

Many leading modern and contemporary artists are featured, including Joan Eardley, Anne Redpath, John Byrne and Sir Robin Philipson, and all attended one of the four major art colleges in Scotland, including Edinburgh College of Art, Glasgow School of Art, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen. These schools gave artists the opportunity to study within Scotland in a more systematic way and continue to nurture artistic talent.

Today, Scotland is widely acknowledged for its contribution to contemporary art, not just through the vibrant art scenes in Scottish cities throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries, but through the progressive influence these art schools have had on the local communities.
