Marchmont House, Scottish Borders: Exploring Modern Scottish Sculpture

Marchmont House

21st September, with sculpture tours 22nd September

Scotland has been a source of beautiful, inspiring and internationally influential modern sculpture since the Second World War, but has often been under-celebrated. Led by experts, industry leaders and artists, Exploring Modern Scottish Sculpture at Marchmont House near the village of Greenlaw in the Scottish Borders is a one-day event which will seek to define what Scottish sculpture stands for, and shine a light on giants of the medium such as Eduardo Paolozzi, William Turnbull and Gerald Laing. 

The world-class group of speakers, a mix of artists, curators, auctioneers, dealers, collectors and enthusiasts, includes artist, collector and art patron Richard Demarco CBE, sculptors Kenny Hunter, Keith McCarter, Sandy Stoddart FRSE, Charles Poulson and art historian and curator Andrew Patrizio. Saturday 21st September, 9.45am-6.45pm, Registration from 9:15am, £75 incl. morning & afternoon refreshments, buffet lunch & drinks reception.

The following day there are two 2-and-a-half-hour Scottish Sculpture Tours led by Marchmont House’s curator and archivist, which will highlight the Scottish sculptors whose work features in the Marchmont collection, as well as showcase a new generation of local sculptors working today, including Keith McCarter, Frippy Jameson and Charlie Poulson. Sunday 22nd September, 10am or 2pm, £25.  

Marchmont House is an imposing Grade A-listed Palladian mansion built in 1750, at the heart of the Marchmont Estate, lying to the east of the village of Greenlaw in the Scottish Borders, 19 miles west of Berwick-upon-Tweed and just 40 miles from Edinburgh.
