When the Playfair Project (restoring the National Galleries at the Foot
of the Mound) is complete, will
there be enough room to display the work of contemporary artists in the new galleries?
restoration project and new developments at the galleries has caused
some concern on the part of the Exhibiting Societies of Scottish Art
The Society of Scottish Artists
- The Royal Society of Painters and Watercolourists, and
- Visual Arts Scotland
representing contemporary artists.
They believe that the time allotted to them for showing
their work each year will be cut back as the newly refurbished galleries
attract more outside exhibitions.
