Opening Event: Friday 6th March. 6 – 9 pm.
‘No Woman Is An Island’ is an annual exhibition, now in its third year. It features work by SSA Members Rona MacLean and Aileen Grant, and this year the work of other female artists and makers will be included. The artists are within an informal Edinburgh network of women artists and makers who meet regularly to go sketching and discuss the development of their work.
The main focus of the exhibition will be drawings, paintings and handmade prints. Rona’s paintings focus mainly on the urban landscape, particularly allotments in winter. Her recent mezzotints and screenprints feature trees. Aileen draws and paints landscapes in the Western Highlands and Islands using a variety of materials including graphite and glue. Both are members at Edinburgh Printmakers and on show will be their etchings, mezzotints, linocuts and colourful screen prints. The guest artists and makers will contribute paintings, sculpture, furniture, felt and glass-work. The exhibition will be an opportunity to view a lot of new work – all for sale.
The guest artists and makers include painters and printmakers plus award-winning sculptor and SSA Member Elaine Allison, glass-makers Mary Drummond and Denise Horn, Portobello felt-maker Heather Potten and East Lothian cabinet-maker Michaela Huber.
The timing of the exhibition has been planned to coincide with International Women’s Day on 8th March.
The exhibition starts on Saturday 7th March and continues until Sunday 22nd March. It will be open daily between 11 am and 5 pm and either Rona or Aileen will be in attendance every day to discuss the work.
