Art from your Home

Sadly, as we know, all cultural institutions have closed their doors for the foreseeable future for the safety of their staff and the wider community. To fill the gap in not being able to visit your favourite museum or gallery, there are myriad ways that you can enjoy the visual arts from your own home as we all do our bit towards reducing social interactions.

A good place to start is searching our own website for more delights such as the themes on our collections page, whether that be Women Artists, the Highland Clearances or the Scottish Colourists, or why not search the nooks and crannies of the collection yourself as digital access is available to almost every work. Additionally, check out the Scottish Art News pages for our latest reports and updates on artistic goings-on in Scotland and beyond, despite the shutdown, where you will also find all the back issues of our magazine which offer perennial insights on all aspects of art and design. 

Furthermore, our collection is not the only one that can be explored online, art can be experienced from the pages of a book and artists can be listened to through historic and current podcasts. Below are just some recommendations for staying culturally engaged from the comfort of your sofa during these challenging times.
