Curated by Scottish artist, writer and broadcaster Lachlan Goudie, Centennial: Art from the Gracefield Collection at the Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries features key styles, movements and artists of the last century, from the Scottish Colourists through the post-war modern art period to the present day. 

The Gracefield Collection has its origins in the 1920s with the establishment of the Dumfriesshire Educational Trust (DET) art collection, which found a permanent home at Gracefield in 1951. Since then the DET and Dumfries & Galloway Council have added to the publicly owned paintings, drawing, prints, photographs and sculpture, currently comprising over 700 works.
