Joan Eardley, Centenary Exhibition

The Scottish Gallery

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of paintings and drawings by the great Scottish artist Joan Eardley, to commemorate the centenary of her birth, co-inciding with Edinburgh Art Festival in August.

Joan Eardley Centenary will include her most celebrated subjects: the lost Glasgow; the streets and children of Townhead; and her wild, spiritual home at Catterline on the Kincardineshire coast are represented by both major works and charming drawings and pastels. Eardley’s poignant story and early death, her driven, passionate engagement with art, her self-belief and intense shyness are laid bare in every drawing and painting. 

To accompany the exhibition the gallery is creating a new publication containing colour illustration of all works along with original commissioned writing and a foreword from Anne Morrison, the artist’s niece. 

Joan Eardley Centenary will also be supported by a series of online events, films, tours and talks, including the creation of a tapestry in honour of Joan Eardley at Dovecot Studios.
