Play : Create : Relate

Saturday 9 June - Sunday 17 June
10:00 am - 8:00 pm

Garvald Edinburgh presents a multi-media exhibition exploring interpretations
of PLAY.

Preview: Friday 8 June, 6pm – 8pm

Play is a source of learning, a path to creativity and a key to connectivity. Play
uncovers basic truths and reveals new possibilities. Exploring interpretations of
PLAY through a variety of artistic and creative media, this innovative show will
challenge pre-conceptions in an exciting and inspirational way.

Play and playfulness are evident in our artistic and cultural legacy from the
earliest times: from the cave paintings of prehistory to 20 th Century Dada,
Surrealism and everything in between. Playful creativity is both process and
performance, enriching life with an essential element of self-determined
pleasure and personal discovery.

The playful art displayed throughout this exhibition invites us to re-experience
the flights of imagination we remember from childhood and to think anew
about the place of play and playfulness in our adult lives.
