Anima 2017

Saturday 25 March - Saturday 8 April
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Preview on the evening of Friday 24 March

“The saviour of the world is you”

In 2016 Anima started as a collaboration between Basia Mindewicz and David Mola. We have been using symbology of orthodox iconography as a creative source of inspiration, focusing on the meditative process of art making.

In Anima 2017 our aim is to express the inner power hidden in people. This time the result of the research and investigation comes in the shape of sculptural pieces and art installation.

No Woman is an Island

Saturday 25 March - Saturday 8 April
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Preview on the evening of Friday 24 March.

An exhibition of paintings, handcrafted prints and other artwork by Rona MacLean, Aileen Grant and other women artists.

‘No Woman Is An Island’ is an annual exhibition. In this, its fifth year, the exhibition features work by Gillian Murray, as well as regulars Aileen Grant, Cat Outram and Rona MacLean. Several other women artists and makers are in support. This Edinburgh-based network of women artists and makers meet on a regular basis for sketching and to develop their work.

The main focus of the exhibition will be new and recent work by the exhibition organisers, Rona and Aileen, who are painters and printmakers. Landscape and nature are at the heart of their practice: Rona will be showing new screenprints on her favourite theme of trees, along with mini-landscapes and allotment paintings. Aileen will be presenting a collection of hillscapes from the west coast of Scotland with a distinctly orange theme. She will also have new landscape photopolymer prints on show.
