Scottish artists have always been fascinated by the sea and by our relationship to it. From early 19th century landscape painting up to contemporary mixed-media works, this exhibition includes famous names such as William McTaggart and Ian Hamilton Finlay alongside student works from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design.

The exhibition includes a special focus on the work of Will Maclean (Emeritus Professor of Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College), in celebration of his 70th birthday this year. As well as rarely seen works from the University's own collections, the exhibition includes loans from both public and private collections. It has been specially curated as part of WestFest, Dundee's west end festival (13th-19th June).
