Art of Power

Art of Power is an exciting new collaborative exhibition, split across two venues, The Hunterian, Glasgow and Mount Stuart and the ticket price covers entry to the exhibition at both.

This two venue exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see major paintings from the Bute Collection at Mount Stuart, one of the foremost private collections in the UK.

Art of Power  is available to view daily, with an Exhibition Ticket, from 11.00am-12.00 noon & 2.30-3.30pm. Visitors taking a tour of the house will be able to view the exhibition as part of their tour for a limited time only.

Visual Arts

In 2017 Steven Claydon will present a solo exhibition as part of our ongoing Contemporary Visual Arts Programme. The exhibition will take place throughout the grounds and house; bringing new sensibilities to familiar locations as well as those less well known. In his layered response to Mount Stuart and Bute, Claydon has been drawing equivalences between the islands of the Pacific and the Scottish isles.

Mount Stuart has been working in co-operation with The Common Guild, Glasgow to bring Claydon’s work to Scotland; following his nomination for the inaugural Hepworth Prize in 2016. “The Archipelago of Contented Peoples: Endurance Groups” runs at The Common Guild  through 9 July.

Steven Claydon said, “The wealth of material in the Mount Stuart archives, gardens and buildings forms a formidable arsenal of subject matter that is firmly rooted in Scottish history and politics, religious identity and eclectic architectural vernacular. For me, it is the sum accumulation of these often contradictory details that lend Mount Stuart its potency.”
