For the past 25 years the Travelling Gallery has played an active part in showcasing Scottish artists, so it is delighted to be part of GENERATION, a nationwide celebration of contemporary art in Scotland.

The exhibition will take place in over 60 venues between 19 July – 14 November 2014.

The Travelling Gallery is a mobile art gallery, custom-built in a big, beautiful bus. The bus will travel the length and breadth of Scotland, visiting schools, high streets, community centres, and many other venues on the way.

Councillor Richard Lewis, Culture and Sport Convenor for the City of Edinburgh Council, said: "Once again the Travelling Gallery is set to be a fascinating exhibition which will draw crowds from communities across Scotland.

“This year, I am particularly looking forward to a short film that has been developed for the exhibition which includes artists talking about their work to pupils from Edinburgh schools. Another highlight will be seeing the bus when it returns to the City Art Centre as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival in August.” 

To find out where the gallery will tour and when it visit Edinburgh, see the Travelling Gallery listings.
