Lycidas/Aberdeen Art Gallery/Kelly-Anne Cairns

The 'Art in Aberdeen' evening put on by the conference organizers was easily one of the highlights of my trip to Aberdeen.  I loved this space when I first visited it in 2004, picking out this exasperated Lycidas by the entryway as one of my favourites. The gallery came alive in a different way this time through Kelly-Anne Cairns' thoughtful illumination of the works on display. Afterwards I quizzed Kelly-Anne for gallery recommendations in Edinburgh with an eye to our trip there in late May: the Leith Gallery, the Open Eye Gallery, and the Scottish Gallery were all on her list.
