We’ve a rare treat for visitors to the Museum from now until Monday 20th March.
Our brand new Spotlight art exhibition in the Linthouse in Irvine features Francis Cadell’s ‘The Pier at Cove – Loch Long’, a rare example of the famous Scottish Colourist’s works featuring a boat.
Come along and see Cadell’s work along with 20 other stunning and thought-provoking art works acquired over the past year and a half as part of our growing art collection.
On show are paintings, sculpture, original travel posters and box art by artists including George Wyllie, Kate Downie, Will Maclean, Joyce W. Cairns, Tom McKendrick, Benno Schotz and Patricia Cain amongst others.
Entry to the Spotlight Exhibition is included in the Museum admission.
