Join us for this special private view of this timely tribute to one of the greatest Scottish artists of the 20th century.

Alan Davie: Beginning in a far-off World is a centenary exhibition celebrating the work of Scottish artist Alan Davie (1920-2014). The exhibition features rarely seen works from each decade of his career, as well as a tapestry and rug created in collaboration with Dovecot Studios.

Alan Davie was a true polymath, working as a painter, jeweller, and jazz musician. Davie built a multidisciplinary practice which led him to seek out the magic in all his pursuits, particularly in painting.

The only exhibition held in Scotland to mark the artist’s centenary, Alan Davie: Beginning of a far-off World takes its title from a 1949 monotype that will feature in the show alongside paintings, drawings, and archive material from the private collections of Davie’s friends and peers.
