‘Advancing the Abstract’ is the debut exhibition from a new collective of abstract painters based in Scotland. The collective, aptly named, The Abstractionistas, is currently made up of four artists – Esther Donaldson, Megan Chapman, Judith Shaylor and Susan Wilson. These women bring a depth of experience in the arts and a firm dedication to abstract expression, each one striking a different chord with their use of colour, line, space, and drama.
The goal of the collective is to create more opportunities to share the enduring importance, power and pull of abstraction with viewers across Scotland. Please join us for this exciting inaugural exhibition.
The exhibition will be open to the public, subject to current government guidelines. Masks are required except for those who are exempt, social distancing will be in place, and hand sanitiser will be available.
Please book your free tickets on Eventbrite so that we can provide you with a safer and more enjoyable exhibition experience. There are 10 tickets available for each 30-minute time slot to allow for physical distancing.

A socially distanced, in person class, for having creative fun with an old or unloved piece of furniture that’s in need of a new look. Runs monthly.
We’ll guide you through the whole process of furniture upcycling, from designing your piece, how to prepare and repair furniture for painting and about the different types of paints that can be used including how to mix your own chalk paint, sharing with you our product recommendations and insider tips to avoid and fix common mistakes.
You’ll learn how to identify great furniture to upcycle and where to source second hand pieces.
Best of all, you get to transform a piece of your furniture and share in the creative journey of others and follow the transformation of their pieces too.
By the time you finish our furniture painting class, you’ll be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently use paints, varnishes and waxes on your own to upcycle more furniture.
Be warned… furniture painting is addictive!
