The University's collection of Scottish Art is extensive and varied, but litle known to the public. This exhibition presents rarely-seen works by Scottish artists over the past 300 years, including major figures as well as less well-known names. Among the artists on show are John Thomson, David Wilkie, Erskine Nicol, Sir William Quiller Orchardson, Sir Joseph Noel Paton, William York Macgregor, Sir David Young Cameron, George Henry, McIntosh Patrick, John Bellany, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Will Maclean.

To complement the exhibition, the Tower Foyer Gallery will be showing a selection of prints from the series Cloud Atomic Laboratory by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, part of the Scottish Arts Council Bequest.
