The SOC has collaborated with Visual Arts Scotland (VAS) to organise an open exhibition inspired by birds.

VAS is a large collective of artists working in a wide range of disciplines including both fine arts and applied arts. The exhibition presents the selected entries resulting from an open call to the VAS membership and reflects the broad base of interests and skills of the group. Selected artworks include jewellery, ceramics, textiles, monumental garden sculpture as well as paintings and fine art prints.

The themes touched on by the artists are equally varied, many reflecting on the comfort, inspiration, and sheer delight that we find in the observation and company of birds.
