9 November to 22 February
The physical act of mark-making across time in Scotland is the focus of Lines from Scotland, the new exhibition at St Andrews Museum in Fife. Curated by Amanda Game, in collaboration with Diana Sykes of Fife Contemporary, it is billed as the first-ever exhibition dedicated to exploring the different ways that drawing in Scotland has shaped the work of the country’s most celebrated artists.
Twenty-three artists, painters, sculptors, textile designers, musicians and makers, spanning three generations, are represented by rarely-seen works by Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Elizabeth Blackadder, Andy Goldsworthy, Dorothy Hogg, David Shrigley and Inge Thomson, among others: hand-drawn pencil and ink lines share space with lines from the etching press, and lines incised into ceramic surfaces; some lines are modelled in wire or woven as threads; lines are animated, scored as music and shaped into words and poems.
