Scottish Women Artists: 250 Years of Challenging Perception

About Scottish Women Artists: 250 Years of Challenging Perception

Dovecot is working with The Fleming Collection to show show over 70 outstanding works by over 45 artists who have challenged and shaped the Scottish art scene. The exhibition, Scottish Women Artists: 250 Years of Challenging Perception, highlights key women artists who have changed society’s view over the centuries of what women should and could do, and the significance of work by women artists in Scotland’s cultural history. In an era when women lead Scotland’s government, galleries and art schools, Dovecot and The Fleming Collection celebrate the pioneering women who broke down prejudices and barriers, paving the way for the contemporary art scene in Scotland.
