Next door Anthony Wood Gallery has a studio exhibition of Henry Wright Kerr RSA, which includes work by the other Walter Scott (d.1940). On the other side of the gender divide two of Scotland’s finest women painters take a very different ap- proach to the poetics, rather than the politics, of art. Victoria Crowe, showing 'Reflection – New Work' at The Scottish Gallery is haunted by one city in particular: Venice. Her richly worked paintings subtly evoke all the mysterious allure and nostalgic yearnings that are ref- lected by that magical city forever hovering between land and sea. Barbara Rae, exhibiting for the first time at The Open Eye Gallery – with that superb master of pastel, Mathew Draper – is the great artist explorer, constantly travelling the globe and seeking out remote and abandoned landscapes in order to recapture their haunting presences and ancestral voices through the power of decorative colour and symbolic iconography. Finally, may I also suggest a visit to Edinburgh University’s magnificent Georgian Gallery where I have curated an exhibition of small paintings by the late Craigie Aitchison? This will, I hope, be like a return to the garden of your dreams . . .
