Cultural diplomacy is a pillar of the Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation’s (FWAF) charitable goals. Through the public loaning of artwork and its promotion at exhibitions, in print and on-line, as well as through a range of educational initiatives, FWAF aims to strengthen relationships and the shared values of cultures and nations by inspiring dialogue that fosters understanding of the art and creativity of Scotland.
One example of FWAF's role as an ambassador for Scottish art is built through its collaboration with both the Westminster and Scottish Governments. Works from the Fleming Collection are hung at the Office for the Secretary of State for Scotland, the British Embassy in Dublin and the Scottish Government’s London HQ, Scotland House.
Thus Scottish art, represented by artists such as Ann Redpath, Elizabeth Blackadder, David Michie, Craigie Aitchison, D Y Cameron and Allan Ramsay, provides the backdrop to business and relationship building in these prestigious buildings. Inevitably access is controlled to these venues although visits by groups interested in the arts are sometimes possible. For further information please contact us.
