(Closed for Christmas 25 December – 2 January)
Mon-Fri 09.30-20.30 Sat 09.30-16.30

The latest exhibition in the Lamb Gallery features stunning works from the University of Dundee’s Fine Art Collections inspired by our darkest dreams and nightmares. Including surreal images that will make your imagination run wild, prepare for a fantastical experience that will make your strangest visions come to life! Take a journey through bizarre landscapes, and meet some of our most uncanny characters. Come along to see some of the weirdest artworks in our collections, including works by Arthur Rackham, John Tenniel, John Johnstone, Ian Scott, Graeme Todd, Tommy Crooks, Alan Michael, Derrick Guild, Mary Modeen and Edward Summerton.

The artworks featured have been chosen because of their dream-like scenes and nightmarish characters. Each of them can be interpreted in many ways, and we want you to tell us your thoughts about the pictures that most inspire you.   Please use the cards provided in the gallery to describe what you see in the pictures, and have the chance to see your thoughts displayed in the exhibition! 

On Thursday 5th December at 1pm, join the exhibition’s curators, Matthew Jarron and Hope Roberts, for an informal guided tour.
