Aberdeen art gallery to open late to cope with record visitors
Aberdeen Art Gallery is to extend its opening hours as a result of demand to see an exhibition.
"From Van Gogh to Vettriano" has attracted record audiences since it opened in February.
More than 12,000 people viewed the exhibition in its first two weeks and weekends have seen up to 2,000 visitors.
The gallery will open until 20:00 on two evenings so the public can view the display before it ends on 15 April.
The exhibition features work by Vincent van Gogh, Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet, British artists Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash and modern masters Lucian Freud and R.B. Kitaj.
It also features Jack Vettriano's iconic work The Singing Butler.
It became the most expensive painting by a Scottish artist when it sold for £750,000 eight years ago.
Visitor numbers to the gallery have doubled to see the selection of paintings and sculpture drawn from a number of collections in the north-east.
To cope with the demand the Aberdeen Art Gallery has decided to extend its opening hours on the 5th and 12th of April.
Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums Manager Christine Rew said: "We are delighted that so many people have come to see this outstanding selection of paintings and sculpture drawn from a number of collections in the north-east.
"The two special late night openings have been arranged in direct response to public demand."
