An exhibition of new acquisitions showcasing some of Scotland’s most distinguished sporting talent has gone on display at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.
‘In It to Win It’ features a photographic portrait of curling champion Eve Muirhead which was originally taken for the cover of the 2012 ‘Women of Curling’ Charity Sports Calendar by photographer and RCCC Assistant Performance Development Coach, Brad Askew.
The portrait was taken at Blair Castle in June 2011 and was acquired for the permanent collection of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in April of this year. The exhibition runs until October 2012.
