Alchemy - Inspiring Art, Inspiring Science

The first exhibition in our new gallery showcasing work by local schools, colleges, arts organisations and artists presents work by Aberdeen school pupils inspired by objects borrowed from our collection during the Art Gallery redevelopment. This innovative cross-curricular project encouraged young minds to explore links between art and science through real artworks and artefacts which were displayed in school and brought to life through sessions with artists, our curators and University of Aberdeen scientists.

Join us at Central Library this Book Week Scotland for a journey into the world of “Train Noir”, as the two authors discuss crime set on the rails.

SJI Holliday’s Violet takes us on a trip on the Trans-Siberian Express, but one of the passengers is not who they claim to be. Meanwhile, MJ Cross begins What She Saw Last Night with a death on the Caledonian Sleeper, leading to a mystery to unravel.

The event will be followed by the opportunity to meet the authors and have your books signed.
