Two exhibitions will be running simultaneously at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh.

Coinciding with the publication of the first monograph about his work, Bill Scott is a major posthumous retrospective exploring the sculptor’s key themes and influences. Best known for his constructed sculptures in mixed materials, Scott (1935-2012) was the first sculptor to be elected President of the RSA. The exhibition includes examples of his assemblage works as well as cast bronzes, drawings and prints. 

Frances Walker: Travelling On features early paintings and late, large-scale paintings and prints by the acclaimed Scottish artist based on her research trips, beginning with the award of the RSA Carnegie Travelling Scholarship in 1953. One of the most celebrated artists currently working in Scotland, Frances Walker RSA was awarded a CBE in 2020 for services to Scottish art. She has travelled extensively throughout her career and the exhibition includes works inspired by the Western Isles, Orkney, Iceland, Finland, Slovenia, South Georgia and Antarctica.
