You Choose: Favourites from the City Art Centre
Every year the City Art Centre stages a varied programme of exhibitions drawn from its permanent collection of historic and contemporary Scottish art. Curators are normally responsible for selecting the artworks that go on display, but this year the public have taken on this role and made their own choices.
Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm; Sunday 12pm - 5pm
Who is this for? - All
Dates: 13 December 2014 - 19 July 2015
You Choose: Favourites from the City Art Centre presents a selection of our most popular paintings as voted for by the public. The exhibition is the culmination of a project run between June and September 2014, which surveyed people on their favourite artworks from the City Art Centre’s collection. The project made use of the BBC Your Paintings website, a resource which enabled voters to view digital images of over 900 oil and acrylic paintings before selecting their personal favourites. The results of the survey are finally revealed in this exhibition.
The City Art Centre’s collection includes landscapes, portraits, still life studies and abstract images, from a range of different time periods. You Choose celebrates this rich and varied collection, displaying old favourites by renowned Scottish artists alongside lesser-known artistic gems. Selected by the public, this exhibition promises to have something for everyone.
