ABERDEEN ART GALLERY GOES TO DRUM CASTLE

The unique rooms within Drum Castle play host to a new exhibition of works with a Scottish flavour, on loan from Aberdeen Art Gallery’s collections. Northern Lights showcases many of Aberdeen Art Gallery’s iconic paintings and also a new addition to the collection by Elizabeth Blackadder, bequeathed through the Art Fund. Works by Scottish artists and those with a Scottish connection are presented in a display where modern art mingles with 18th and 19th century paintings.
