Throughout 2017, the Dick Institute has been hosting its first programme of Gaelic language visual art workshops and events. This exhibition in the Young People’s Gallery celebrates the project and displays work created by pupils P1 to P7 from Onthank Primary School Gaelic Unit, who have been visiting the Dick Institute every month to participate in Gaelic medium art workshops with professional Gaelic speaking visual artist, Eòghann MacColl. The pupils have worked with MacColl to explore and interpret the changing exhibition programme at the Dick Institute allowing pupils to create their own artwork across a variety of art forms in response to the themes contained in contemporary art, design and collections exhibitions I Am Here, Rachel Maclean’s Feed Me, A Wooded Land and Nathan Coley’s PALACE.
