Dr Alastair Ross is the Art Collection’s featured artist for Forth Valley Open Studios and an exhibition of his work will be on display in the Art Collection from 25th May to 31st July. His talk will discuss his work and provide an introduction to sculpture.
Dr Alastair R Ross is one of the leading figurative sculptors in the U K. He is a Fellow and past Vice-President of the Royal Society of British Sculptors (in 1989 he was awarded the Society’s Sir Otto Beit medal), an Academician of the Royal Scottish Academy, an R.G.I. and an Hon. Fellow of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
His commissioned and exhibition works embrace a wide variety of artistic concepts, scales, media and contexts. Nonetheless, the human figure remains firmly at the core of his thinking and underpins all his sculptural output.
A former lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Dundee, he has also lectured in the USA and Malta. He is represented in both public and private collections worldwide.
No need to book, all welcome.
