We are very excited to announce the dates for our next exhibition at the Scottish National Galleries! In a slight change to our usual schedule our next exhibition will be a little earlier than usual, the exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 3 December till Tuesday 27 December, and will once again be presented in the majestic upper galleries. We're working very hard behind the scenes to bring you a number of brand new exciting opportunities, including new prizes and exciting new partnerships and events. Details of opportunities, including deadlines for the open submission, will be released first to VAS members, so be sure to join or renew your membership now in order to be kept up to date with the latest developments!

Open Exhibition

Annual Open Exhibition 2013

Date: 01/03/2013

Visual Arts Scotland 2013 was held in the more intimate downstairs space of The Royal Scottish Academy. Our aim remained to promote the quality and diversity of contemporary fine and applied arts in Scotland, giving them an equal platform. A more minimal and coherent hang allowed our exhibits space to breathe in the small downstairs galleries. We achieved a strong, well paced exhibition that does not overwhelm the viewer but still demonstrates our commitment to diversity.
