There is a recurrent theme in the work of some artists in Scotland – it is an enquiry and response to our relationship with landscape and nature. Other places evoke this enquiry as well, but Scotland has a particular tradition. Heartwood, which is now in its third year, is an artist-led (organised, curated, invented, managed, initiated, imagined, selected) thing. Open for a week in September in Perthshire when the leaves are turning, perhaps the most beautiful time of year, the exhibition comprises work by the artist organisers as well as invited artists.
Venue: Monkquell, Brucefield Road, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, PH10 6LA.
Heartwood is at Monkquell, Brucefield Road in Rosemount, on the East side of A923 about 3 miles from Coupar Angus towards Blairgowrie, Perthshire. From Blairgowrie it is one mile towards Coupar Angus.
Dates & Opening Hours:
Sat 3 – Sun 11 September,
10 am – 5 pm.
