Coming up in June, July and August!
It’s Exhibition time!! An important element of our academic calendar are the end of year exhibitions! These are an opportunity for our students to present their work and show what they have achieved over the year! This year we have 3 exhibitions for you and we hope you enjoy them…….
Our first exhibition is the Paintbox End of Year Show - this exhibition is held in our sunny upstairs studio on the first floor of Cockenzie House. Opening on Thursday 20th June at 6pm-8pm, and continuing 10am-4pm until Sunday 23rd, this showcases the work of most of our full year courses! From General Drawing and Painting to the Drawing and Observational Course, it will be a feast for the eyes! If you are considering joining a course for next year, this would be a great opportunity to see what we do!
Next up is “Resolution”. Resolution will be held at the Arusha Gallery, on Dundas Street, central Edinburgh. This show is the culmination of a year of intensive work by our Professional Development Course. This course is designed to help Artists set themselves up professionally and covers everything from sculpting a strong studio practice to business and marketing. Resolution will bring together all of this year’s 9 Artists to present their final body of work. This is always such a fantastic event and we encourage you to come and celebrate the opening with us! The show opens on Thursday 27th June from 6pm-8pm and will continue until Sunday 10am-4pm. As ever, a huge thank you to Bella and her team at Arusha for their support and the opportunity to exhibit in her beautiful gallery.
Finally, we are delighted to be taking part in the much anticipated 3 Harbours Festival this year! Always a great event in the East Lothian calendar, this year, as part of Cockenzie House we will have a corridor exhibition of the work of our Mentoring Course Students! The corridor exhibition will open on Saturday 29th June at 10am-4pm running for a month and will be held on the Ground Floor. Do pop in to say hello!
