This exhibition celebrates the centenary of the birth of Joan Eardley, now recognised as one of Scotland’s most important artists.
To complement Eardley’s paintings from the permanent collection held in Perth, the exhibition will bring together some of her most iconic works from the National Galleries of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy, City Art Centre, Edinburgh, the Fleming Collection and the University of Dundee. The exhibition will offer visitors the opportunity to see some of Eardley’s most significant works, including her bold atmospheric paintings of the sea and her iconic paintings and sketches of children in the Townhead area of Glasgow.
The exhibition is one of many happening across the country celebrating the work of Joan Eardley in what would have been her centenary year. The centenary offers visitors to Perth Museum and Art Gallery a fantastic opportunity to link with the Eardley 100 wider celebrations of her work that are happening across Scotland from Aberdeen to Dumfries, providing local audiences with a rare chance to view her stunning work in Perth.
