An exhibition in the Tower Foyer Gallery
Robert Leishman SSA RSW (1916-1989) was highly acclaimed for his dream-like paintings featuring floating figures, birds, flowers and other symbolic imagery. Born in Inverkeithing and trained in Edinburgh, Leishman taught art in various schools in Fife before coming to Dundee in the 1960s to teach at Kirkton High School. He exhibited widely and was nationally renowned, yet this is the first significant exhibition of his work in over 30 years. It features a range of oils, watercolours and drawings from throughout his career including works never before seen in public.
Open Mon-Fri 9.30am-7pm, Sat 11am-4pm. Please note that the Tower Building may close earlier on weekdays during university vacations - we recommend arriving by 5pm.
