Art & Craft Collective in Edinburgh is showing Mark Kirkham: One Hundred Cats, the result of a project that Mark, also known as The Edinburgh Sketcher, undertook after the death of a beloved family cat to create a cat a day for 100 days. Varying in size, media and materials, the originals are for sale at £5 each with all proceeds going to Lothian Cat Rescue.
Also showing is the gallery’s first new exhibitor for 2023: David Esson specialises in stippling and pointillism, whose work is inspired by the wildlife around his Highland base. His painstakingly-detailed designs, comprising solely carefully-positioned dots, result in deep and atmospheric textures. David will be in the gallery for the opening to discuss his process and its inspiration, and he will return to participate in the gallery’s Artist in the Window series.
