Edinburgh’s Open Eye Gallery is showing its first show of 2021 online. Celebrating the Lives of W. Gordon Smith and Mrs Jay Gordonsmith showcases on a large scale the late couple’s unique art collection – the culmination of a lifetime’s work by two people who worked tirelessly to promote and support Scottish art and its artists.

A video of the exhibition and the ideas behind it is available on the Gallery’s website, and the exhibition’s proceeds will assist in fulfilling Gordon Smith’s legacy of promoting art in Scotland by supporting the RSA’s Residencies for Scotland programme and bursaries for Foundation Year students at Leith School of Art.
