This sounds like a wonderful opportunity. Wishing I lived a little closer so I could attend.

Join us for our Open Meeting on the evening of Tuesday 6 March 2012, to celebrate the highlights of 2011 and look forward to 2012 and beyond. With the successful transformation of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery now complete and a packed programme of exhibitions and events under our belts, 2011 has been an exciting year for National Galleries of Scotland. 2012 is also shaping up to be a great year with two blockbuster exhibitions scheduled and much more on offer.
The meeting will be led by Ben Thomson, Chair of the Board of Trustees and John Leighton, Director-General of the National Galleries of Scotland. The gallery Directors will provide sneak previews of our upcoming exhibitions including Van Gogh to Kandinsky: Symbolist Landscape in Europe 1880–1910 andPicasso and Modern British Art. There will be an opportunity to learn more about the behind-the-scenes work at the Galleries, with a focus on the complex and remarkable installation of the latest ARTIST ROOMS display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Sol leWitt’s Wall Drawing #1136. You will be able to take part in a curator-led tour of the beautiful Red Chalk: Raphael to Ramsay display, as well as learn more about our research, publishing and education outreach activity.
Refreshments will be provided by the Scottish Cafe and Restaurant.
