Visit / Exhibitions / SAMPLE by Collect Scotland


SAMPLE by Collect Scotland 24 Mar – 22 Jun
Gallery One

Collect Scotland is a platform for Scottish printed textile design. Established in 2012, Collect Scotland exhibit internationally with an evolving collective of designers born or based in Scotland.

SAMPLE showcases specially commissioned pieces from 15 current or past members of Collect Scotland.

Lorna Brown, Susan Castillo, Alice Dansey-Wright, Joanna Dixon, Rachel Duckhouse, Hazel Dunn,Yvonne Elliott-Kellighan, Chloe Highmore, Vanessa Hindshaw, Lyndsay Mackie, Mhari McMullan, Ruth Mitchell, Marie O'Connor, Marion Parola and Natasha Samasuwo.

The exhibition aims to shine a light on the anonymous and hidden discipline of textile design, an industry where designers are not always credited for commercial work. These designs have been created in response to five trends identified by Collect:

Chiaroscuro, Earthly Paradise, Cut and Paste, Emotional Landscape and Remembered Dreams.

The exhibition also features a retrospective of work produced by Collect members for the Collect studio portfolio, which has previously been exhibited at Premiere Vision, Paris, but not at home in Scotland until now. The diverse client list of Collect Scotland includes Nike, Whistles, IKEA, Converse and Paperchase.

SAMPLE is curated by the directors of Collect Scotland; Mhari McMullan, Yvonne Elliott-Kellighan, Marion Parola, and Chloe Highmore.
