About the Artist

The University of Stirling Art Collection is a varied one. Artworks from the permanent collection are on display throughout the Pathfoot Building, with sculpture in courtyards and across the scenic campus. In addition, our temporary exhibitions, which are directly inspired by the research themes of the University, this year focus on health and wellbeing under the title 'The Art of Wellbeing'.

You are welcome to visit the University of Stirling Art Collection, which is mainly based in the Pathfoot Building, but also includes the sculpture placed around the scenic campus.
Alongside permanent exhibits such as sculpture by Barbara Hepworth, a large wall mural by Mary Martin and oil paintings by J D Fergusson, we also have temporary exhibitions on the theme of health and wellbeing. In the Crush Hall you can see 'Blue' which is a display of works featuring this colour, curated from the permanent collection, including paintings by Robin Phillpson, Michael Tyzack and James Morrison, and prints by Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Rosalind Lawless and Norman McLaren. The 'Second Chancers' exhibition explores the lives of individuals with experience of the community justice system, and 'Hope', created by artist George Berrie, which ponders Maslow's hierarchy of needs in surrealist form.
There are also newly acquired artworks to be seen, and paintings by Elizabeth Blackadder and Joan Eardley.
