Helllo blog viewers, I am back to the blog after quite a long time of not coming here. My hits have definitely dropped a lot since two months ago but I am certain I can make it back up to the standards that I have become accustomed to.

Anyway the main reason I’m back is to promote my exhibition, which is taking part in Edinburgh next week. It will be open from 10am-6pm on Tuesday 18th August until Saturday 22nd August. Anyone in the area should definitely come along, we’ll hopefully get a kettle and will offer tea or coffee to whoever comes in.

Quite a lot of the art is on sale also, so all you wannabe collector’s (and real collectors) should come along to make a purchase.

Anyway here’s the poster:Occupied

There’s a few of us participating in the event, Carrie Gooch an artist who is interested in movement and also the audience’s participation in the art, her blog is http://cuilcheanna.wordpress.com/

And also Lauren McLaughlin who is interested in history and is inspired by past techniques but gives them a modern twist, her blog is http://laurenmclaughlin24.wordpress.com/

David Hutton was also going to exhibit but due to circumstances has had to pull out. He is a very contemporary artist who prefers to work in video, his blog is http://davidhutton.wordpress.com/

Anyhooos so you should come along if you like the look of any of these artists. Some of the work is new but there will be some old classics as well. The new work is combined by the concept of money, we were definitely influenced by the shop and the art market, so hopefully that will come across during the exhibition.

Yeah, so come one, come all


p.s here’s a map of where it is btw

“Occupied” is an upcoming exhibition featuring some of Edinburgh’s newest artists who have just graduated from their first year of the HND contemporary art practice course at Telford.


The exhibition takes place from the 18th-22nd of August between 10am and 6pm, with an opening night on the 17th August beginning at 7pm.


The artists have included some former pieces that were produced during the first year of the course. These cover the themes of journey, protection and the notion of celebrity. Alongside these will be new works by the artists inspired by money: a theme appropriate to their gallery space, a shop.


The art covers a broad range of disciplines with drawing, sculpture, video and conceptual all making an appearance.


So please come join these artists as they open their first out-of-college exhibition at 9 Gillespie Place in Bruntsfield, see map below:
