Rites of Spring Event

Please join us for this special fund-raising celebration during our annual exhibition on Thursday 21 March from 5.30-7.30pm. With a glass of wine, this is a fantastic opportunity to parade in the RSA Galleries and enjoy works exhibited by the Society of Scottish Artists, Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour  and Visual Arts Scotland.

A £50 raffle ticket will buy you a chance to win an original work by a leading Scottish artist – hiding amongst the prizes are works by the likes of John C Brown, Liz Douglas, Alison Dunlop, Joyce Gunn Cairns, Charles MacQueen, Catriona Mann, Janet Melrose, Gordon Mitchell, Nan Mulder, Nicola Murray, Philip Reeves, Elaine Shemilt, Christine Woodside … Or you can join the excitement of the auction of a unique John Bellany drawing.

The galleries will be alive with music too, from Blueflint, bringing you sweet-voiced Americana, to classical guitar and violins, Northumbrian pipes and Project Moonbase who will play a Spring-themed set from futures past and present.

Please buy tickets for yourself and as many friends as possible. It is only through your support that the three societies can continue to exhibit in these prestigious and beautiful galleries, which were, after all, built as a shared public facility. Most importantly, it will be fun!  Tickets cost £10 (£8 to Members of SSA, RSW & VAS) and can be bought from the exhibition sales desks: SSA 0131 624 6478 and RSW 0131 624 6479.
