Hospitalfield Arts in Arbroath gave primary pupils an insight into ‘land art’ this week thanks to a visit from the Travelling Gallery.

The pupils from Muirfield and Timmergreens primary schools were given a gallery tour and then took part in a special land art activity on the Hospitalfield estate on Wednesday.

The workshop was led by Hannah Imlach, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, whose work was selected for the exhibition ‘This Land’.

It presents a beautifully alternative view of the Scottish landscape, inspired by the Year of Natural Scotland, featuring a range of artists, including Henry Coombes, Andy Holden, Michael Reisch and Iain Sarjeant.

A spokesperson for Hospitalfield Arts said: “We are really excited to be running our first large scale schools project in several years and I can’t wait to meet the pupils and teachers and introduce them to Hannah Imlach who is an inspiring artist at the start of her career.

“Hannah has already done several successful projects around Scotland since graduating in 2011 and always sites her work in the landscape, often travelling to remote locations like Rannoch Moor.

“Photography is a big part of what she does and we will be introducing the school pupils to this when they visit.

“The children will be invited to bring their families back on Sunday to see the outcomes of the project.”
