The Tweed Road was the title given by Rory McEwen (1932-1982) to a ‘sculptural environment’ he made for the Richard Demarco Gallery in Melville Crescent, Edinburgh in 1969 (he presented solo exhibitions there in 1967, 1968, 1969 & 1970). The exhibition features documentary photographs of The Tweed Road, some of McEwen’s rarely exhibited glass sculptures and the film he made of his close friend the German artist Joseph Beuys (1921-1986), on Rannoch Moor in 1970.

The Tweed Road marks the 25th Anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival exhibition at Inverleith House Rory McEwen: The Botanical Paintings (which toured to the Serpentine Gallery, London) and is presented to complement an exhibition of McEwen's botanical paintings, Rory McEwen: The Colours of Reality on display at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew from 14 May.
