This exhibition explores the print-making and painterly processes that define Rae’s work and the constantly evolving technical methods she employs. Barbara Rae is a Royal Academician and the recipient of numerous awards including a CBE and an Honorary Doctorate from the University of St Andrews. There will also be a parallel display of Rae’s work in the School of Art History, 79 North Street, which is open Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm. Free.
