Over the years, the City Art Centre has shown its permanent collection of Scottish art in various formats, enabling visitors to appreciate its range and depth.


In 2011, Scottish Art 1650-2010 revealed a variety of highlights, presented chronologically from 17th century to present day. But with over 4,500 artworks in the collection, this barely scratched the surface.

Now, four years later and by popular demand, the collection is once again returning to the forefront of our exhibitions programme.

Scottish Art: People, Places, Ideas is based on a thematic framework and explores four key areas - people, landscape, still life and abstraction. Within each section a variety of artistic styles and different media are juxtaposed, demonstrating the impressive breadth of creativity that has developed in Scotland over the last 250 years.

For more information on the four themes, click on each link below.

Scottish Art: People, Places, Ideas celebrates this important public resource, while providing an overview of Scottish art that is both comprehensive and fresh.
