Insectarium: Fascination and Fear

3 JUNE-25 JULY
OPEN THUR-SUN, 10AM-5PM
FREE ENTRY

This exhibition presents artworks created by members of the Society of Scottish Artists in response to the conflicting feelings that Insects inspire in us. Beautiful or repulsive, dangerous or inspiring, Insects are above all essential to life on earth, and certainly our own. "Insectarium" offers a collection of artworks that reflect our complex feelings towards these crucial creatures in a wide range of media: sculptures, paintings, prints and small installations.

The exhibition is organised jointly with the Society of Scottish Artists, a not-for-profit organisation run by artists for artists, whose primary function is to support its membership to organise, present and promote exhibitions and events, as well as offering a platform for discussion and sharing. The exhibition can be viewed online on their website; for further details, please click here.

More work by other wildlife artists can be found in our online art shop.
