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 theÂ art of Duncan Shanks. Duncan ShanksÂ is one of Scotlandâ€™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.
