Utopia – What’s Yours?

21 December 2019 – 1 March 2020, 10am – 4pm

An exhibition by the Society of Scottish Artists. The idea of Utopia may be older than Thomas More’s famous book, but what could actually be gained from the concept, or possibly lost. A personal utopia would surely be as individual as each of us, and our own personal imagination. Is this the difficulty with any proposed Utopian society? The power of the individual would make the construct a contradiction.

This idea is explored by members of the Society of Scottish Artists with a selection of contemporary work in painting, drawing, print and mixed media on display at Kirkcudbright Galleries. The exhibition was previously displayed at Gracefield Art Centre.
