his year’s annual Christmas show takes a close look at the land we call home, Scotland! We’ve asked the artists working at Project Ability to think creatively about the idea of the landscape. Scotland is world renowned for its wild beauty and nature. It is not concerned with being ‘user friendly’and makes no apologies for its wet, windy and wild climate. It is in many ways what keeps the Scottish highlands and countryside so lush and green.

This year we celebrate the land beneath our feet. Each artist has chosen some piece of the Scottish landscape that they have connected with. For some it has evoked memories of childhood holidays, for others it is their regular walking trips or mountain hikes. We’ve got street scenes, monuments, scenic views of seaside towns… and some of Scotland’s most adorable and unique wildlife too!

Scotland: The Land Beneath Our Feet is an inclusive exhibition for artists with different lived experience and ability to come together to celebrate diversity, creativity and the Scottish landscape. The holiday season is a great time of year to show your support for the work we do by admiring and/or purchasing truly unique artworks for your friends and family. We support the artistic adventures and aspirations of children and young people with disabilities, people with mental ill-health and people with learning disabilities.

In addition to the Christmas exhibition, our gallery shop will be packed with unique and affordable gift ideas; including bags, cards, paintings, prints, sculptures, brooches and lots more!

The work purchased will be available to pick up in the last week of the show, from Monday 18th December. 

Project Ability’s exhibition programme is supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation
