Spring Open Doors – yes, this is happening!

Open Doors Registration
We are planning a St Margaret’s House Open Day on Saturday 27 April 2019.

When?Open Doors
Like last year, the spring Open Doors event will take place on just one day. We will invite the public via our communications to St Margaret’s House from 11am till 6pm on Saturday, 27 of April.

You can organise a special taster session of your classes, have a temporary exhibition, or simply open your door while you’re working or meditating or yoga-ing!

Sounds good? 
We had more than 1000 people pass through the building doors last year and are expecting similar interest this year too. The Open Day is an amazing opportunity to share the creative diversity that defines St Margaret’s House community.

And now you think…
“Yes I want take part and open my studio” and we answer “that’s brilliant!”.
To sign up and take part in the Open Day please email Irina Stancheva (523.glassart@gmail.com) by 20th of April and let her know your name, studio number and whether you are planning to: help organise the event, open your doors, run a workshop tester etc.

We will distribute fliers, but will not publish a detailed printed programme before the event. Instead, the programme will be shared online the week before the event and a printed version will be available for visitors on the day. Please remember, you MUST have your own Public Liability Insurance (through your A_N membership or similar) and updated risk assessment form by 27th of April.

Featured Artist: Rebecca Holloway

I’m Rebecca Holloway, a recent graduate from Edinburgh College of Art. I think of my work as various reconstructions of experiences, sightings, and imaginings. As such, it is specific to certain details and thereby acknowledges the selectivity of attention and memory. My approach to painting follows this, by playing with traditional oil painting techniques, exposing and brightening under layers. I use the work to study how singular images can be brought together to provoke a sense of atmosphere and coherent space. Through this, I intend to involve the viewer in acts of introversion and examination, providing a chance to slow down.

Featured Artist: Owen Normand

Owen Normand is a Scottish contemporary painter who studied at Edinburgh College of Art. His style can be described as expressive realism, where both observation and creativity play key roles. He paints figurative work and still life; the key focus of his work is to explore an awareness of impermanence and an empathy towards the inevitable passing of all things.
