New exhibitions at the City Art Centre

William Gear - Summer Fete

Are you looking for something to do at the weekend? Why not visit the City Art Centre to see our two new exhibitions?

‘William Gear 1915-1997: The painter that Britain forgot’ is a major retrospective of work by 20th century Scottish abstract artist William Gear. The painting above is one of his works entitled ‘Summer Fete’ © The Estate of William Gear

‘Jagged Generation: William Gear’s Contemporaries and Influences’ showcases a range of artworks by the circle of Scottish artists associated with Gear, including Alan Davie, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Eduardo Paolozzi.

Or if you are in Leith, do nip along to Ocean Terminal to see ‘Scars on the City, Edinburgh In World War 1’.
