Hand, Heart & Soul - The Arts and Crafts Movement in Scotland
The exhibition Hand, Heart and Soul: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Scotland was grant aided by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation through their Regional Museums Initiative.
Following the initial exhibition at City Art Centre, Edinburgh (June to September 2007), it travelled to Millennium Galleries, Sheffield (October to January 2008) and finally to Aberdeen Art Gallery (June to August 2008).
The exhibition curator, Dr Elizabeth Cumming, has kindly provided the exhibition guide and texts of the exhibit labels which are reproduced on these pages. ACMS are very pleased to be able to provide a repository for this information to make it accessible to all with an interest in the Arts and Crafts Movement in Scotland.
The book Hand, Heart and Soul: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Scotland by Elizabeth Cumming has been recently reissued.
Heart and Soul looked at Arts and Crafts practice across Scotland between
1880 and 1939. More than 300 objects in a wide variety of media - from jewellery
to furniture, ceramics and glass, textiles to architectural designs - were
assembled from public and private collections. Some items were familiar,
many others (and their designers) were new discoveries. Arranged through
six thematic sections, the show presented fascinating facets of the movement
from the design or decoration of buildings to studio crafts. Together they
provided fresh insight into life and identity a century ago.
The exhibition comprised 6 sections, details of these may be seen on the following pages:
