Celebrate the life and work of Elizabeth Blackadder, passionate gardener and master of painting flowers.

Considered one of Scotland’s greatest artists, painter and printmaker Elizabeth Blackadder (1931-2021) was particularly known for her charming paintings of flowers and was notably the first woman to be elected to both the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Academy respectively. Her work was often inspired by her own thriving garden which featured daffodils, tulips, iris and lilies, and not forgetting her adorable cats who often popped up in her paintings.

The exhibition features a selection of watercolours, etchings and screen prints that follow the themes of growth and renewal, always alive and well in a tended garden. Pieces made throughout her long life will be on display, demonstrating how she remained deeply connected to nature and planting throughout her career.
