Expressions of Interest for Exhibiting in 2023

Kinross is looking for expressions of interest from artists and exhibitors for 2023, in all mediums.

As an arts and spirituality centre, Kinross Arts Centre recognises the important role spiritual expression has in authenticating a sense of self, purpose and belonging for many artists.

Art offers solace from a chaotic and anxious world and calls us to an encounter -- a spiritual present which allows both artist and viewer to explore beyond the self. This can manifest

in many ways. If you believe themes such as spirituality, wonder, social justice or empathy inform your art, we would like to hear from you.
