First day of installation at Patriothall today and everything went pretty well. Minor hiccups included the van being just too small to get all we needed in one load and forgetting the cutlery for lunch.
The gallery itself is a great space tucked away in a really interesting part of Edinburgh’s Newtown. The building has been around for sometime and has gone through various uses including a bakery before being taken over by WASPS and turned into artist studios and a gallery space. (see Brenda Smart at the opening for a historical summary)
Everybody demonstrated great patience and understanding as the process of laying out and installing an exhibition of so many diverse individuals and artworks can be an involved and fractious experience.
Unfortunately I didn’t make time to take as many photographs as I might have hoped but they will give some impression of what went on today.
