The Surveillance Gallery is a project conceived and developed by local artist, film maker and #CAPetc graduate, Bob Winton in collaboration with North Edinburgh Art Centre. Just a few hundred yards from us at Edinburgh College the gallery project provides an exciting new public exhibition space the heart of the Muirhouse community of North Edinburgh. Nestling neatly in the public walkthrough space between the Pennywell shopping arcade and North Edinburgh Arts Centre Surveillance Gallery launched with an exhibition featuring a range of work from artists at varying stages of their careers including Erin Colquhoun, Mariola Albinowska & Georgia Thornton all #CAPers past and present.
All the works were pasted or painted directly onto the exterior walls of both the Art an shopping centres enlivening an otherwise blank seldom considered space with a variety of 2D artworks. In mid september we took a walk round the gallery with Bob and Kate Wimpress, Director of North Edinburgh Art Centre, both of whom gave really informative and enthusiastic talks about the centre and the Surveillance Gallery project.
The Surveillance Gallery is an ongoing and we are really delighted to have been asked to continue with out participation and support for the project.
