An active publishing programme through magazines and books is part of the Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation’s goals. The most recent book is a brief illustrated history of the Scottish Colourists, which also serves as a guide to the touring exhibition. A further volume is planned on the Glasgow Boys and Girls to accompany the exhibition scheduled for the Granary Gallery, Berwick-upon-Tweed in spring 2020.
Scottish Art News magazine: Published biannually in the Spring and Autumn, Scottish Art News is the only publication dedicated to Scottish art and creativity – covering news, features, interviews, criticism, scholarship and listings on historic and contemporary art.
Its publication underpins the Foundation’s goal of promoting Scottish art and creativity by spreading the word to a targeted distribution of key groups with an interest in Scottish art, which embraces policy makers, government ministers, museum curators, artists, critics, art correspondents, digital, print and broadcast editors, dealers and auctioneers as well as art historians, academics and the Scottish cultural diaspora. It is also distributed through gallery and museum bookshops across Scotland.

Today, the four artists known as the Scottish Colourists - SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, FCB Cadell and Leslie Hunter - are acknowledged as one of the most talented, experimental and distinctive groups in 20th century British art. This book tells the story of their lives and their art; from the birth of the movements, led by Peploe and Fergusson, in the artistic ferment of Paris before the Frist World War, to its coming of age in the 1920s when the four artists first showed as a quartet, winning renown as masters of luminous colour and contemporary design. The story concludes with their glorious late maturity as landscape painters, entranced by the distinctive beauty of Scottish light.
