Claire and I have a space available in our studio as our 3rd person is leaving.
It’s available from the 1st of Februaryfor £120 per month which includes unlimited internet and the furniture that is in there now (or if you don’t want it we can get rid of it for you). It is approximately 2.5m x 2.5m. Ideally we would like someone who spends time in the studio during the week and enjoys a cosy, homely atmosphere.
“Where is the coward that would not dare to fight for such a land as Scotland,” Sir Walter Scott asked in the 18th Century. Yet, what does it mean to be Scottish in 2017? Does one have to be born in Scotland to feel Scottish? In a particularly tense period following Brexit, the possibility of another independence referendum, and aftershocks from the United States election, Scottish Identity asks artists to examine their own views of Scotland and her people. We welcome artists of any background to explore their own associations in the aim of presenting a body of work that exposes the nuanced dimensions of this unique country. Works may directly engage with social issues, but they can also address themes such as the natural landscape, historic traditions, personal experience, notions of ancestry, patriotism and politics.
Calling all open-minded artists, emerging or established to participate in non-profit, international project. www.imagomundiart.com
Don’t forget you can pick up a canvas or board from either the main office or the Arts Community office on the third floor of St Margaret’s House!
