★★★★ - The Scotsman  

Alan Davie: Beginning of a far-off World celebrates the centenary of Scottish artist Alan Davie (1920-2014). A timely tribute to one of the greatest Scottish artists of the 20th century, this 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. A painter, jeweller, and jazz musician, he built a multidisciplinary practice and sought the magic in all his pursuits, in particular painting. Drawing from private collections, Alan Davie: Beginning of a Far-off World explores Davie’s evolution as an artist from early paintings as a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art to drawings from a series made during the last year of his life.

A tapestry Cosmic Spiral and rug Celtic Spirit II created by Davie and Dovecot Studios marks a significant creative relationship and demonstrate the artist’s interest in the tradition and art of weaving.

General Admission: £10.50.  Concessions: £9.50 (includes entry to RAPHAEL - Magister Raffaello).
