DATES & TIMES

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

Whether hiding in the margins or taking centre stage, animals make regular visits to
David Elliot’s imaginative world and provide ongoing visual inspiration for his stories
and illustrations. From his early experience as a gateman at Edinburgh Zoo, Elliot has
been observing and taking note of animals, big and small, throughout his artistic
career. The Gallery is privileged to house the growing collection of Elliot’s drawings
and brings together a handpicked selection of some of the artists favourite animal
explorations in this delightful new exhibition.
