Christmas Makers’ Market Pop-Up Exhibition

5th December – drop off works to the gallery

6th – setup (Marcin will curate and hang all the artworks)

7th – the market and exhibition open to audience from 11am until 5pm

8th – all works need to be collected

Each artist will have to prepare their own labels with name, title, medium and price. Each artist can bring 2-3 pieces, however Marcin can’t guarantee that all of them will be showcased (depending on how much space will be available). The exhibition is a good opportunity for artists to promote their art so I would encourage everyone to have business cards next to their works with contact details. In case of any purchase artists will have to deal directly with the customer.  It’s a good opportunity to talk to potential clients. We don’t take any percentage from sales and there’s no fees for participation. The exhibition is for the tenants only. For any questions artists should contact Marcin via email or pop in to the office.

We require volunteers to help with the invigilation of both galleries, please get in touch if this is something you would be interested in.

Alice Boyle “COMING ALIVE”

In Association with Linlithgow Burgh Halls; Alice Boyle Presents ‘COMING ALIVE’.

Go with your feelings – and embrace the sheer joy of these works – Giles Sutherland – The Times – 2017

Expect to be challenged, emotionally touched and frequently amused – Vivien Devlin – ArtMag – 2017

I’m sure this vivacious and engaging woman will continue to produce more evocative collections – Phyllis McLeish – Ayrshire Magazine 2016

Coming Alive is a new body of work by Edinburgh-based artist, Alice Boyle. For many years, Boyle has sketched after daily meditation, creating odd and often distorted creatures that come streaming to mind as soon as the pencil hits the paper.  In the spring of 2018 she decided to bring these characters to life, creating a unique world that is as strange as it is familiar.

Boyle’s new work has been inspired by the title of the artist’s previous exhibition, ‘Think Less, Feel More’. While her past show was a comment on the relationship between thinking and feeling and what that might look like, here, Alice has chosen to take a less complex approach, and run with an idea that felt powerful yet simple.
