This summer a number of artists from Edinburgh Palette were invited to create site-specific works for The Neverending Glen – an immersive art trail featuring installations, sculptures, performances and events taking place during the Kelburn Garden Party. Now in it’s second year, the Neverening Glen aims to enhance the audience’s experience of the amazing Kelburn Estate with it’s magical and ancient forestry, mesmerizing views over the Atlantic and astounding location on the west coast.
Sophia paid a visit to the Glen earlier this month to check on how the artworks were doing. See some of the photos below and for more photos visit the Facebook page (and don’t forget to give us your “like”)
Last session we looked again at the work of the Scottish painter Alice Boyle but this week we had the lady herself to answer our questions. She spoke about how she worked and worked with the children as they turned their designs into paintings. She showed us layering colour and how to work with our hands as well as brushes. We all agreed it was much more fun having the actual artist with us, if a little intimidating. The wee artists were a little shy and over awed but deeply impressed! more
This week we’ve had two special guest visitors to St Margaret’s House – see the photos below.
On Tuesday, Kezia Dugdale, Leader of the Scottish Labour Party, visited for a tour of the building and galleries. She was very keen to learn more about what we do here and the activities taking place on her doorstep.
Today, Wednesday, we welcomed the Director of Creative Industries for Creative Scotland, Clive Gillman, who is tasked with implementing the Creative Industries Strategy 2016-2017. Clive was previously Director of Dundee Contemporary Arts and, being a keen artist himself, is interested in how St Margaret’s House has developed and the many goings on inside the building.
