1st March - 7th June 2013
The Spring 2013 exhibition is a busy group show of established and emerging artists from both home and abroad, who work in a broad range of media including drawing, animation, film, sculpture, photography, painting and digital media. The exhibition includes artists who use a playful, childlike, feel good essence in their work, sometimes hiding darker depths but more often making us smile. The simplicity and low-tech nature of many of the artworks disguises sometimes complex processes and skills but also makes the exhibition instantly accessible to audiences of all ages.

David Shrigley will show a selection of works including drawing, painting, animation and sculpture
Matthew Barnes is more well known for his urban photography, but his neon sculpture, recently exhibited at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Art Festival, will brighten up the cloudiest day on tour.
Japanese artists Yukako Sakakura graduated from the Glasgow School of Art painting and printmaking department in 2008. For this exhibition she will exhibit her chaotic videos where she performs with various kitchen appliances.
Recent graduate, Alex Millar will show his playful animation entitled Totem.
Other exhibiting artists are Jock Mooney, Kim Rugg, Yeondoo Jung, Olivia Bee and Peter McDonald.
We are also delighted that the Travelling Gallery will be host to Ellie Harrison’s ‘Adopt a Sign’ project which will be installed outside the Travelling Gallery in every location for the whole of 2013.
The exhibition will be complemented by gallery talks, an education programme including an Education/Learning pack, artist-led workshops and events and a free colour publication.
