THIS LAND presented a beautifully alternative view of the Scottish Landscape, inspired by the Year of Natural Scotland, through works by artists with a diverse range of practises.

The exhibition included painting by Henry Coombes, works exploring the island of Rockall by Andy Holden, sculpture and photography by Hannah Imlach, digitally re-worked landscape photographs by Michael Reisch and Iain Sarjeant's photographs of everyday landscape taken in various locations throughout the country.

The exhibition was accompanied by a complementary programme, which included the Beta Band music video ' Inner Meet Me' by John Maclean and ' Wish You Were Here', a series of 16 postcards by Francis Davies.

During the exhibition the gallery was host to Ellie Harrison's 'Adopt a Sign' project, which was installed outside the Travelling Gallery at every location during the tour.
