The President and Council warmly invite you to join them for the SSA Annual General Meeting 2013. We aim to build on the success of last year’s meeting and encourage you to come along and contribute your voice and support to the ongoing discussion around the future of what is indeed one of the grandest old dames of the Scottish exhibiting landscape.

As well as the ongoing business of the SSA, we are proud to present for your enjoyment, specially invited talks from SSA artists, Norman McBeath SSA and Morgan Cahn (further details below). We would also like to introduce you to the new Professional Members and update you on the ongoing development of our lovely shiny website.

We look forward to your company,

Louise Ritchie President



SSA Professional Member, Norman McBeath SSA will talk about a recently completed collaboration with one of the country’s leading poets, Robert Crawford, Professor of Modern Scottish Literature at the University of St Andrews. The work is called Venice and brings together printmaking, photography, poetry, translation and the story of a truly remarkable Renaissance character, James Crichton.


Seattle born artist, Morgan Cahn has been selected for the SSA New Graduate Award 2013 from DJCAD. Cahn is an interdisciplinary artist that has a penchant for scavenging. She creates work that asks people to question their daily routines and interpersonal relationships in this age of disposability. At the AGM, Cahn will show a short video from her degree show, a time lapse of the week, and talk a little about the stories told within this work. She will then sing a karaoke video that illustrates the history of filmic representations of Scotland.
