I'm delighted to announce that the Edinburgh City Art Centre shop are stocking my Edinburgh Photography book, 'Edinburgh Reflections' again.

City Art Centre

Enjoy a visit to the City Art Centre, a main Edinburgh art gallery with one of the best collections of Scottish art. We show interesting exhibitions from our own collections and from all over the world. We can also tempt you with an attractive shop located on the ground floor.

The City Art Centre has a busy programme of exhibitions which change regularly to suit the interests of our visitors. People come to see favourites from the City’s nationally Recognised collection of Scottish art; new work from local or international artists or exhibitions from other countries. Exhibitions of historic and modern photography, contemporary art and design, architecture and the built environment are staged in a rolling programme.  We have shown Egyptian and Roman objects and even featured artwork and costumes from the Star Wars films.

Their current 2012 exhibition is Leslie Hunter available 21 July until 14 October 2012.

Exhibition:

George 'Leslie' Hunter (1877 - 1931) was one of a group of four artists now known collectively as The Scottish Colourists. Together, they were among the most influential Scottish artists of the 20th century.

Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm, Sunday 12pm - 5pm

Who is this for? - All
Dates:21 July 2012 - 14 October 2012
Cost: £5; £3.50 concessions

Although they never worked as a group and their art developed at different rates, there were times when the Colourist artists painted together in twos and threes in France or Iona. What they had in common was a love for bold colour in their painting. Their work revitalised Scottish art and has influenced succeeding generations of Scottish artists to this day.

This major exhibition comprises over fifty works of varying sizes by Hunter, and is drawn from public and private collections throughout the UK. As well as tracing the development of his work it gives full rein to its wonderful variety.

About the City Art Centre in Edinburgh

The City Art Centre is an impressive nine storey former warehouse in the centre of Edinburgh. Originally constructed between 1899 and 1902,  as  part of the Scotsman newspaper buildings, it was converted to gallery use in 1980 and houses light and airy exhibition galleries over six floors.
