Aberdeen Art Gallery is the main visual arts exhibition space in the city of Aberdeen. It was founded in 1884 in a building designed by Alexander Marshall Mackenzie with a sculpture court added in 1905. Christine Rew, Art Gallery & Museums Manager, will discuss the major redevelopment of Aberdeen Art Gallery, Cowdray Hall and Remembrance Hall. This talk will present a fascinating insight into the one-time opportunity to transform a much-loved complex of buildings. With more rooms to explore and more of the gallery’s exceptional artworks on display, Christine will also share what’s on show.

We would also like to remind Friends that all blue badge parking has been suspended on the Mound Precinct.  We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this and please be assured that we aim to re-instate the bays as soon as possible.
