What’s On – June 2018

All of Jun:  Exhibition – Views of Urban Scotland

This is a really excellent exhibition (from recent feedback!) that provides a fascinating look at how artists have interpreted Scottish urban life and landscape since the turn of the 17th century.  Around 30 outstanding drawings, watercolours and prints on loan from NGS give a unique insight into the changing lifestyle and townscapes of Scotland, with intriguing glimpses of a way of life now lost; several are local to Banff and Macduff.  Until 5th Aug. Included in admission.
