Edinburgh Festival Art

Posted on: July 19th, 2012

The Edinburgh Festival is arguably one of the most important art events in this year’s calendar. The Scottish Gallery will be hosting a special festival exhibition focusing on the art of Duncan Shanks. Duncan Shanks is one of Scotland’s most senior landscape painters. He draws his subjects and inspiration from the countryside around his home in the Clyde Valley. Strong colour and richly-applied paint chart the changing seasons and the forces imminent in Nature.
