Perth Museum Art Gallery Scotland
It was a positively uplifting experience to visit Perth Art Gallery Museum Scotland during this peculiar time of the Covid-19 virus. @CPKMuseums
Admittedly it was a Sunday morning towards the end of September and it was to be expected, quiet. Yet a silver lining as it meant we could take our time and really study the works on display without any hurry, jostling or stretching over other’s shoulders.
And away from the merry-go-round and crush of the London, Glasgow and Edinburgh galleries, and so we discovered this place to be a gem, as were the works invitingly drawing us in to view almost intimately. And the warmly welcoming staff couldn’t have tried harder to make us very welcome.
Two principle displays: from the Perth Gallery’s permanent collection: works of contemporary and recent Scottish artists ‘New Ways of Seeing: Scottish Art Schools’.
John Byrne 1940- Jock and the Tiger Cat 1968
Illustrated here are a number of works that caught my attention. The reader can easily follow through on the Internet for any descriptions of the works and the artists and formulate their own opinions and interpretations. My views I’ll not impose.
It was refreshingly good to view works by artists not so well known as the block-busting circuit of the larger more commercial galleries. It was uplifting for the soul to be able to indulge in a cultural immersion during these dark times.
Highly recommended – Perth Art Gallery and Museum – for its works of art, artefacts and to bathe in an enlightening experience away from the troubles of the world.
