Scottish Portrait Award 2023 – 19th January until 17th February


The below works are a small selection of the available pieces to view in the Scottish Portrait Awards 2023. Please come visit the Club to view them all. The exhibition is viewable from Saturday 20th January until Saturday 17th February.

Launched by the Scottish Arts Trust in 2017, the Scottish Portrait Awards have become a barometer of contemporary Scottish art practice. The Awards give visibility to a mix of well-established artists as well as newcomers across a wide variety of styles. Drawing on personal and universal narratives – from identity and family, to loss and personal reflections, the Scottish Portrait Award exhibitions are always diverse and engaging, generating contemplation as well as debate while celebrating the wealth of creative talent in Scotland today.
