Alexander Moffat, Ruth Nicol and Alan Riach
“Landmarks” will investigate the encompassing nature of Scottish Literature and culture, alongside Montrose which is an important medieval harbour to this day. In 1920, a modern revolution in Scottish literature began in Montrose where writers and artists in the locale helped to found a new and unique voice for Scotland in the arts.
"Landmarks" brings together people, land and culture by showcasing iconic portraits of Scottish poets by Alexander Moffat and Ruth Nicol's energetic paintings of the landscapes that influenced and inspired these poets. Both artists collaborate with the poet and Professor of Scottish Literature, Alan Riach, whose writings and critical expertise will further enhance the project.
The aim of this exhibition is to investigate the impact of the locations on our writers, poets, singers and musicians and to consider the influences on those who were exposed to a sea environment as part of the natural ebb and flow of ideas.
Interpreted from Alan Riach’s writings
