Contemporary Photography in Scotland: Gracefield Arts Centre


Currently on show at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries, Scotland is a programme of contemporary Scottish photography.

Those who have not been able to see the finalists of the Jill Todd Photographic Award in Glasgow have the pleasure of viewing it in Gallery 1 from the 14th February until the 8th March.

The images on display in Gallery 2 are by established photographers produced during the last 35 years, and have been accessioned into the Scottish National Photography Collection since 1980. Photographers include Fay Godwin, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Wendy McMurdo and Murray Johnston. Also on display by Scottish photographer, Alicia Bruce, is a photograph from ‘Menie: A portrait of a North East community in conflict’, a project she began in 2010 documenting the local response to the development of the Trump International Golf Links on the Aberdeenshire coast. Gracefield has a strong collection of photographs and works using photographic techniques, such as the works here by Philip Braham, Norman McBeath and Raymond Moore which explore various themes and imagery.

An exhibition talk with Robin Gillanders will also be taking place in Gallery 2 at Gracefield Arts Centre on 15th February.
