The Mitchell Gallery at Kirkcudbright Galleries is hosting an exhibition showcasing the latest works of Ewan McClure, marking his return to the venue following a solo exhibition there in 2020. A long-standing artist-in-residence at Broughton House in Kirkcudbright, Ewan’s work hangs in private and public collections including the Robert Fleming collection, Princeton Theological Seminary and the Royal Scottish Academy, and combines flowing, gestural townscapes, honest, life-like portraits, and carefully-staged still-lifes, with his love of paint and astute observation a common thread throughout.

His work has been much in-demand following his appearances as a finalist on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year in 2013, and he was shortlisted for the prestigious Conversations Prize for a multi-figure painting at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.

Admission is free, and the exhibition features works for sale and examples of previous portrait studies.
