We are delighted to announce we are scheduling a limited number of Gallery tours for our current exhibition "Dar to Dunoon" this weekend.  

The tours will be led by Dr Kate Cowcher (University of St Andrews) and will be available on Saturday and Sunday mornings at the following times: 

10.30am

11.00am

11.30am 

In 2018, Kate partnered with Madeleine Conn (Argyll and Bute Council) to begin a research project examining the twelve works of African modern art bought by Naomi Mitchison for the Argyll Collection. Established by the writer and Argyll County Councillor Naomi Mitchison in the 1960s, the collection was designed to allow rural communities, and particularly school children, who did not otherwise have access to major museums to enjoy interesting works of modern and contemporary art. 

This is a fascinating opportunity to hear about the research project that led to this exhibition - and to delve deeper into the background of the works currently on display. 

These tours are FREE, but places are limited so booking is advised.
