The exhibition’s opening yesterday was a big success. For the record, I’m posting a few photos of the event (photo credits to Marcel Kacyzinski, who multi tasked on the day as photographer and Alasdair’s wheelchair wrangler).

Ozymandias, one of two new screen prints by Alasdair Gray (2017). This is an artist’s proof, and is in line to be acquired by a public collection. Limited editions (runs of 60) will be available to buy at the exhibition
Tower of Babel artist’s proof (2017) as above
The exhibition will run until April 29th. Alasdair’s prints in this historic and ambient room (a former Barclay’s Bank vault, I’m told) taken together make for a really unique and a memorable experience.
A percentage of the value of sales will be contributed to the Saltire Society’s new post secondary Alasdair Gray Inspiring Scotland Bursary for Scottish cultural studies.
The exhibition is here:
Saltire Society Headquarters, 9 Fountain Close, 22 High Street Edinburgh, EH1 1TF
