Two of Scotland’s leading arts organisations, the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) and Visual Arts Scotland (VAS) have joined forces for the first time to present a collaborative exhibition celebrating the best in contemporary and applied art. Entitled Open – SSA & VAS Together 2018, the exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy features over 160 established and emerging artists and makers from Scotland and abroad selected from an open call which attracted over 2,000 submissions. The exhibition includes: the premiere of artist/filmmaker Sven Werner’s multimedia work, ‘Observer Cinema’; a display by Craft Scotland members which challenges perceptions of contemporary glass; a showcase of ten recent graduates of Scotland’s main art schools; and work by artists who live and work in the Outer Hebrides.
