The Wild Space will also be hosting ‘Beyond the Summit’ - an exhibition of intriguing new abstract landscape paintings by Colin Duncan. The artwork in his latest show was inspired by aspects of the land and sensations of the weather he encountered when visiting land we manage in Highland Perthshire on Schiehallion.

Colin Duncan’s 'Beyond the Summit' exhibition of paintings can be seen at the Wild Space until the end of March.
