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 'Space and Place'.

The Art Collection aims to make art and culture a part of everyday life for staff, students, and visitors throughout the campus. We support academics to enable exchanges between art, research, and teaching and inspire everyone to engage with art.

Each academic year, all of the Art Collection’s exhibitions, events and workshops are directly inspired by one of the University research themes.
In 2022-23 our chosen focus is 'Space and Place', and during this time we are celebrating the inspiration and sustenance that buildings and outdoor spaces provide for us, especially here on campus.

In the Crush Hall this year we have chosen a selection of works from the permanent collection. In other gallery spaces in Pathfoot, you can see exhibitions of work by Norman Ackroyd, David James Grinly and Jennifer Wicks. There is also a display detailing the history of the Pathfoot Building itself, as well as other works from the permanent collection such as new acquisitions from Glasgow artist Toby Paterson, alongside old favourites J D Fergusson, Barbara Hepworth and Mary Martin.

The Pathfoot Building is open Monday-Friday, from 9am till 5pm, but there is more to see and enjoy on the beautiful campus which is open to all, every day of the week.

You can read much more about our collections on our blog. Find the link on our website.


The Pathfoot Building is on the hill on your left immediately after entering the University of Stirling campus by the main gate.
