St Margaret’s House is an inclusive, creative community where arts, enterprise and communities are able to co-exist and collaborate. Despite its size, the building often feels hidden in plain sight. Therefore we open our doors once a year to let the public see all that goes on here.
This year, we plan to open for art on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October 2016. There are three exhibitions featuring St Margaret’s residents opening that weekend, so we cautiously expect good footfall already.
We are sure you will immediately want to cancel all other plans – weddings, birthdays, holidays, etc. (Please note that Edinburgh Palette cannot be held liable for any charges incurred from cancelled travel arrangements).
Geri Loup Nolan has been working Gallery 2, St Margaret’s House, exploring, experimenting and developing ideas for new work.
Doors will be open at the above times, and you are invited to come see how things have been going. Geri may still be working and reworking in the space, but feel free to chat to her about the work if you would like to.
This residency is kindly supported by Edinburgh Palette.
‘Drawing on Drawing’ is a major exhibition of drawings which runs at ECA until 4th March 2016.
The exhibition will bring together works by current students in all years from across the School of Art, alongside drawings from staff and invited alumni, for whom drawing is a central part of their practice. This includes Edinburgh Palette resident artists past and present, such as Robyn Benson, Seamus Killick and Deirdre Macleod. more
