Aberdeen Art Gallery

Granite and the Gallery 
Aberdeen is unique in that the cityscape is created by over 200 years of using local granite for building. Aberdeen Art Gallery being one of the cites most beautiful granite buildings was designed by Architect A. Marshall Mackenzie. Granite columns within the entrance hall stand at 11 feet 6 inches high, each have a brass plaque at its base identifying the granite used (Kemnay, Corrennie, isle of Mull, Rora, Tillifourie, and Sclattie, to name a few). Very Impressive and easily missed if you were focused on the Jenny Saville, or Ken Currie.     

Charles Avery
Ok so this tiny picture below is the only one I could find of Charles Avery's untitled (men leading unridables). The absolute highlight of my trip to Aberdeen Art Gallery, and my first ever sighting of an actual Charles Avery (pencil and Goache on card 2007).
