Getting crafty at the City Art Centre as Reflection exhibition is installed
Published Wednesday 16 November 2011
The third and fourth floors of the City Art Centre are a hive of activity as artists and craft makers assemble and install their work ahead of Saturday's exhibition opening.
Reflection highlights the inspiring work of 22 artists and makers who have been supported by the Visual Arts Awards and Craft Maker Awards run by the City of Edinburgh Council in partnership with Creative Scotland since 2000.
Co-curators Tracy Scodellaro (pictured) and Maeve Toal are currently working round the clock to help the participating artists install their work before the exhibition opens later this week.
Painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation, film and new media, combine with ceramics, glassmaking, jewellery and textiles to provide a small glimpse of the breadth of skill and imagination that the city has to offer. As many of the exhibiting pieces are for sale, there is the exciting opportunity to invest in Edinburgh's talent and support the city's thriving art and craft sector.
Reflection opens on Saturday 19 November and runs until 12 February 2012. That was then: this is NOW, a retrospective celebration of Scottish tapestry art, opened at the gallery on Saturday 12 November.
Admission is free and the City Art Centre is open seven days - 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, 12 noon to 5pm on Sundays.
