Among the highlights of this year’s art fair was the space reserved for Fife’s Tatha Gallery. A beautiful space right on the ocean in Newport-on-Tay, the gallery prides itself on its collection of both established and developing artists. Tatha’s ethos is making art more accessible and they accomplish this brilliantly with the art they have brought along to the Edinburgh Art Fair.
Showcasing fantastic work from Calum McClure, specialising in wonderfully bleak and beautifully lush prints and paintings of country estates, cemeteries and botanical gardens alongside brilliant mixed-medium pieces by David Cass, whose timeless renderings of ocean scenes and mountain tops caught our attention from across the fair!
Also on display was abstract acrylic works by Christopher Wood, continuing the nautical theme of the showcase, splashing colour across the walls. Alongside this are large works by Helen Glassford, co-founder of Tatha, whose large scale works appear both still and in motion and are utterly captivating.
Together, the artists on display created a distinctly peaceful atmosphere in a crowded fair and consequently the Tatha Gallery showcase was among the most memorable of the whole event. While the fair may be finished, we urge you to pay Tatha a visit by the Tay and experience the pieces for yourself!
