Galleries and Art in Scotland

Scotland is a country that inspires creativity in its people and those who visit it. The rich culture, beautiful landscapes and intriguing people have long been a focus of song, literature and art and not much has changed in more recent years. Scottish artists continue to illustrate the beauty and harshness that they may see in life while musicians continue to sing about the trials and joys they experience in life and writers continue to express their thoughts in poetry and novels. Art in its various forms continues to be one of the most readily accepted and understood forms of expression, and Scotland has a long list of art galleries that are well worth visiting. Some of these display older Scottish artworks while others prefer to focus on more contemporary artworks. Be it watercolor, oil paints, graphic work, sculpture or mixed media, you can find it all at the many fine art galleries in Scotland. More...
