Surveillance Gallery at NEA

Film by Electric Lime Productions

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.

Anjila’s Glasses: 2014 Diploma Show ESW

It has been a while but finally we’re getting round to some blog updates. Although there have been a few updates over and since the summer there are a few gaps that need filling so we’ll start with some images from the 2014 Diploma Exhibition Anjila’s Glasses which took place at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop in late May. The exhibition was fantastic of course and extremely well attended on the opening night and the following days is was open to the public. This year the exhibition was shorter than usual, open only 2 days for public viewing but that was due to the need to relocate much of the work to Summerhall as the students were taking part in the general Edinburgh College Creative Industries HND Diploma Exhibition at the city centre arts venue.

A week into the Summerhall show an additional room became available which allowed our CAP1 colleagues to show a work each from their recent projects and you can see them installing in their work in the image below.
