My work in - 'The Edinburgh Art Book'

The Edinburgh Art Book (6 June 2019) showcases one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Inspired by Edinburgh's unique architecture, over 50 artists have produced a unique collection of contemporary images illustrating all aspects of the city and surrounding area. The city is shown in a new light through a range of media, from screen print and computer aided design to hand-cut collage.

The Edinburgh Art Book, the third in the 'City Art Book' series will be launched in its home city on June 21st 2019 at Blackwells Bookshop (South Side) For further information please go to:

We are delighted that the Foreword to the book has been written by Tommy Zyw, Director of The Scottish Gallery 

A hard-backed 127 page illustrated book, The Edinburgh Art Book will be created by artist and editor Emma Bennett and published by UIT, Cambridge.

Festival Fringe Exhibition - Abstracting the New Town

My Edinburgh Fringe Festival Exhibition opens in just over a week. I'm all set! All the art work is back from the framers and I'm just now doing the final marketing and labelling bits and pieces. It's been a busy past couple of months making the work, and I've missed out on some of this lovely sunny weather painting in my lovely cool New Town studio (at least it has been cool!), and now it's all done. I will be at the gallery for the whole of the exhibition, so I do hope you can make it along to see my new work and say hello.

August 9th - 14th, 11am - 5pm     The Life Room Gallery, 23b Dundas Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6QQ.

Abstracting the New Town - August Exhibition

I'm having a solo show of my latest work this summer, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - Thursday 9th August to Tuesday 14th August, at 'The Life Room Gallery' on Dundas Street, Edinburgh (dates for your diary!). I'm pretty excited, and currently working hard on the new pieces, now starting to count down the days and weeks! Most of the works will be of the surrounding streets in the Edinburgh New Town - the lovely Georgian doors and railings, windows and chimney pots, with a few Botanic Gardens Glasshouses no doubt. This current lovely weather is a gift - I'm loving getting out with my camera and sketchbook scoping out new views and compositions. And sometimes struggling to balance the 'research in the sunshine' time, with time back in the studio making the actual works! I'll keep you posted with sneaky peeks of some of new pieces as they appear. 

The Edinburgh Art Book

I've had three pieces of my work selected for inclusion in the Edinburgh Art Book, to be published next year. It's the next in a series following The Cambridge Art Book, and the Oxford Art Book - lovely looking hard back books about the cities, as seen through the eyes of local artists. (The paintings are all sold already I'm afraid! - 'Forth Rail Bridge', 'Crescent Railings' and 'Great Stuart Street'). I'll post about it again when it's published and available to buy, no doubt. The Cambridge Art Book. 

Out of office - 31st March to 9th April

I'm off on a much needed holiday break this next week, riding a bike in Majorca, and switching off from all things work related, including quite literally my phone. So if you should happen to contact me with regard to something, please be patient - I'll reply to you when I'm back on 9th April. Lucy.
