Just Joan: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Guy Peploe About Joan Eardley's Centenary Exhibition...

Updated: Jul 6


For the latest SWH! podcast Ali talks to Guy Peploe, director at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh, about their forthcoming exhibition 'Joan Eardley | Centenary'. Since her untimely death in 1963 Joan Eardley has gone on to become one of Scotland's artistic national treasure's and Guy talks about her life and work, as well as her special relationship with The Scottish Gallery.

The two also discuss Eardley's iconic 'Glasgow' paintings and the stories behind them, her 'Catterline' work, which explores the wild coastal landscapes of North East Scotland, and so much more. It's a fascinating insight into an artist who helped define how we have come to think of 20th century Scotland and beyond.
