New Work for Scotland
Work produced today by Scotland’s visual artists and craft makers is fast acquiring an international reputation for excellence. Through the National Collecting Scheme for Scotland (NCSS), six major museums and art galleries have been able to acquire over 60 important new works of art for their permanent collections.
This means people now and in the future can enjoy some of the best works of art being made today.
Thanks to the National Collecting Scheme for Scotland (NCSS), The Pier Arts Centre in Orkney will acquire new works of art to complement its wonderful collection of works by artists working in St Ives in the 1930s through to the 1960s.
The National Collecting Scheme for Scotland has been successful in ensuring more works of art by contemporary artists and craft makers with international reputations can be seen in museums and galleries in different parts of Scotland.
The Scheme has been made possible through major investment from the National Lottery through the Scottish Arts Council, from the member museums, and through partnership working with the Contemporary Art Society.
