Spotlight on Scottish artists
Published 04/08/14



WITH the eyes of the world on Scotland for the hugely successful Commonwealth Games, Bohun Gallery focuses on Glasgow in its current exhibition Scottish Art Today.

Glasgow has a long association with turning out world-class artists, and Bohun Gallery is presenting some of the younger artists who are starting to make a name for themselves in the contemporary art market.

Adam Kennedy, winner of the Aspect Prize in 2010, is a Glasgow-based contemporary artist whose work reflects his childhood growing up next to the River Clyde and the decline of shipbuilding.

Neil MacPherson, a member of the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute, has exhibited at Bohun Gallery since the late 1980s and his minutely detailed paintings inspired by Scottish folklore continue to charm and engage visitors to the gallery.

Established graduates of Glasgow School of Art and household names are also included in the show. There is a selection of works by John Byrne RSA, not only a successful artist but also a BAFTA award-winning film-maker. Stephen Conroy graduated from Glasgow School of Art to unprecedented acclaim in 1986. Since then, his brooding, anonymous images of figures have made him one of the foremost figurative artists in Europe, and Bohun Gallery has a selection of his masterful prints.


This major show will bring together some of the best-known and most influential Scottish artists and sculptors working today and those who shaped the direction of Scottish art during the second half of the 20th century. Bohun Gallery, in Reading Road, Henley, first started showing Scottish artists over 25 years ago and has since become one of the leading representatives of Scottish art in the south of England.

The select group of artists who have been invited to participate in Scottish Art Today have submitted work which celebrates the vibrancy and diversity of artistic practice alive in Scotland today.

The exhibition runs until August 16. For more information please visit www.bohungallery.co.uk or call 01491 576 228.
