Mountain and flood: The paintings of Ewen McAslan. 1936 – 2008

March 11th, 2011

11_IMG_0742Ewen McAslan, a founder member of the Glasgow Group in the 1950’s, spent almost three decades as artist and teacher in Canada, returning to Scotland to live and paint in Pittenweem in 1994. His lifelong quest for “something else” found satisfaction in painting the Rockies and the prairies of Canada, and Scotland’s hills and valleys and rocky coasts – as well as haunting figurative works, many inspired by and depicting his wife Isobel.

This is the first major exhibition in Scotland of Ewen’s work, on show at the initial behest of his peers from student days onwards, including Alasdair Gray, James Spence, Jack Knox, Ian McCulloch and Archie McIntosh.

Running from 17th March until 26th April 2011
