We’re pleased to announce that four local artists will benefit from funding for commissions awarded by Aberdeen Art Gallery and the Friends of Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums.  

In September, Aberdeen Art Gallery invited local artists and makers to submit proposals for a series of ‘micro-commissions’ inspired by Aberdeen Archives, Gallery & Museums’ collections of art and history, or highlight gaps within the current collection. Applicants were asked to respond to one of our two current collecting priorities. These are ‘energy, environment, the local economy’ and ‘identity and representation’.

Inhotim, the idyllic art gallery in the heart of Brazil’s mining country 

Published

A small mining town in rural Brazil might seem an unlikely place for Latin America’s largest open-air museum. Yet, that is where art buffs and curious tourists will find the Instituto Inhotim, a contemporary-art-gallery-cum-botanical-garden nestled among mining-scarred mountains some 60 kilometers outside of Belo Horizonte, the state capital of Minas Gerais. 

Everything about Inhotim feels extravagant. Three days can seem insufficient to take in everything the place has to offer. The art is set within a verdant 140-hectare park, where over 4,300 species of plants from all over the world grow among the local Cerrado and Atlantic Forest biomes. Nearly 600 pieces of contemporary art are on display, some inside the 24 pavilions — many of which are works of art in themselves — others outside, in a carefully thought-out symbiosis with the surrounding environment.

An art gallery in Edinburgh is inviting the public to add their own work to the walls.

Edinburgh Printmakers, which was the first, open access, print studio in the UK when it was established 57 years ago, is based in a former factory in Castle Mills, Dundee Street, Fountainbridge.

A new event, Castle Mills: Then & Now, Whose Gallery is it Anyway?, will open up the space to aspiring artists who want to put their own artwork on the walls, or curate existing work.
