Lillie Art Gallery


There are three excellent exhibitions well worth seeing at the Lillie Art Gallery over the next couple of months.

Natural Light II

11 February – 9 March

Stunning portraits from Scotland’s ‘golden generation’ of literary writers.

In 1985 Angela Catlin released her debut book Natural Light with an accompanying exhibition at the Edinburgh International Book Festival that subsequently toured Scotland. The 49 portraits of Scottish authors were heralded not only as spellbinding artistic works, but also as a broader encapsulation of a golden era of Scottish literature. Thirty years on, Catlin has revisited the theme, featuring those seen in the original book such as Alasdair Gray, Jim Kelman and Liz Lochhead, but also casting light on another generation of literary greats including Ali Smith, A L Kennedy and Alan Warner'

Dunoon Connections

11 February – 9 March

This exhibition features work from a group of four artists with strong connections to Dunoon. This is collaboration between four artists who studied at Glasgow School of Art at different times and came together through their involvement with Dunoon Burgh Hall.  Colm Docherty, Anoushka Havinden, Jenny Hunter, and Sandi Kiehlmann produce work that expresses four distinct ways of exploring the world in two dimensions.
