The Scottish Arts Club is the home of the Scottish Portrait Awards (SPAs) throughout most of November. The SPAs were established by the Scottish Arts Club Charitable Trust with the aim of creating a vibrant new platform to celebrate excellence in Scottish portraiture. The Awards are open to fine artists and photographers born, living or studying in Scotland. Hundreds of entries were received for the 2017 competition. The top entries picked by the SPA judges feature in the exhibition and include the 2017 winners of the £5,000 SPA in Fine Art and the £2,000 SPA in Photography.
