19th – 22nd July
In this group show, artists Katie Bootland, Rachael Corcoran, Cathrine Hellberg and Suzanne van der Lingen have composed an audiovisual landscape through the combination of their own work into collective loops. The random coincidences and synchronisations that will manifest out of the various screens and projections will create an ambient composition, connecting each artist’s work with the others through accidental and temporary associations.
25th – 28th July
Group exhibition featuring work from six fourth year Fine Art students. Work shown ranges in style and subject matter, with the central theme being the capturing of ephemeral moments. Rather than ‘improving’ on the scenes captured, the artists seek to transcend the ordinary and provoke an evocative response. This response is triggered through a connective process as the viewer projects their own memories and emotions on to the images depicted.
Food, drinks and live music provided on the opening night.

Edinburgh Art Festival presents Bobby Niven: Palm of the Hand
This exhibition of new work by Bobby Niven brings together anthropomorphic sculptures with more solemn, abstract structures, finding humour in the tension between animate and inert forms.
Made from mud, sprayed concrete and carved wood, Niven’s sculptures act as plinths for found objects and artifacts which they generously offer up to the viewer. A complex layering of motifs between prop, artifact and sculpture is repeated and distorted through scale and form across the installation, creating a conversation between the objects on display and their component parts.
The work presented here was developed during Niven’s residency at Triangle France in Marseille as part of the Glasgow Sculpture Studios exchange programme, supported by Glasgow Life.
