A new art gallery is opening its doors in Leith. Set in prominent corner premises on Portland Place, Graystone Gallery enjoys a location in one of the most vibrant and artistic pockets of EdinburghIts opening exhibition, Water of Leith, Water of Life, celebrates the Water of Leith river and the coastline, showing how Scotland is defined as much by water as by land: fifteen contemporary Scottish artists tell stories of the docks, the coastline, inland waterways and urban maritime architecture through their work.

Graystone Gallery was founded by Rob and Lesley Briggs, who have long dreamt of opening an art gallery to present a rolling exhibition programme of carefully-curated artwork. They will be working with established and emerging local and Scottish artists, many of whom will be familiar to viewers, such as Gary Anderson, Georgina Bown, Jason Cordingley, Wendy Davidson, Lindsay Dudley, Lucy Jones, Gill Knight, Alan Liversedge, Euan McGregor, Georgina Parkins, Clive Ramage, Allan J Robertson, Arran Ross, Anne Skinner, Damian Tremlett.
