Help your loved ones #UnwrapArt this festive season

Scotland’s visual artists are world-renowned, with artists and makers across the country taking inspiration from its rare natural beauty and unique creative heritage. Now, with the Cost Crisis set to affect creative organisations and individuals around Scotland this winter, SCAN is inviting the public to support Scotland’s artists and makers while buying gifts and experiences that loved ones will treasure.

Unwrap Art is SCAN’s annual campaign to encourage Christmas shoppers around the country to buy gifts from its talented members, which include the country’s leading galleries, individual artists, shops, workshops and websites.

Throughout the festive period, we will share gift suggestions and details of upcoming Christmas markets and sales across its social channels, using the #UnwrapArt hashtag. It will encourage Scottish artists, makers, and the public to do the same to drum up interest in the unique and inspirational work being created around the country.
