Our 100 Portraits is a celebration of the learning disabled community

Our artists spent time exploring the history and traditions of portraiture to enable them to use this mode to tell the stories of the people who populate their worlds – be that family, friends, support workers or famous (sometimes fictional) idols.

Working with socially distanced sketches, zoom sittings and photographs of far-flung loved ones, our artists have captured a snapshot of Scotland’s learning disabled community during the pandemic.

We look forward to welcoming visitors to this stylistically diverse exhibition. Expect to see: Morgan’s playful humour; Kay’s colourful figurative compositions; McNaught’s depth and precision; McKinstry’s expressive vibrancy; and Rankin’s delicate touch – alongside pieces by guest artists from within and outwith our studios.

Our 100 Portraits is funded by The National Heritage Lottery Fund.
