Perth Museum & Art Gallery will host the exhibition 'Joan Eardley' to mark the centenary of the acclaimed artist's birth.
This centenary offers Culture Perth and Kinross the opportunity to link with wider Eardley 100 celebrations that are happening across Scotland from Aberdeen to Dumfries, providing local audiences with a rare chance to view her work in Perth.
To compliment Eardley’s paintings from the permanent collection held in Perth, the exhibition will bring together some of her most iconic works from:
- the National Galleries of Scotland
- the Royal Scottish Academy
- City Art Centre, Edinburgh
- the University of Dundee
The exhibition will offer visitors the opportunity to see some of Eardley’s most significant works, including her bold atmospheric paintings of the sea and her iconic paintings and sketches of children in the Townhead area of Glasgow.
Joan Eardley will be one of the new exhibitions on display at the Museum when current restrictions are eased allowing reopening to the public. Admission will be free.
