31st August – 2nd November
Gracefield Arts Centre‘s new exhibition is a response to the idea of Utopia: it may be older than Thomas More’s famous book, but what could actually be gained from the concept, or possibly lost? A personal utopia would surely be as individual as each of us, and our own personal imagination. Is this the difficulty with any proposed Utopian society? The power of the individual would make the construct a contradiction.
This idea is explored by members of the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) with a selection of contemporary work in painting, drawing, print, and mixed media, displayed across two galleries. A complementary selection of work from the Gracefield Collection in on display in the upper rooms in Gallery 1.
