Online. Talks on Fridays at 6:30pm BST
During lockdown, Edinburgh’s Upright Gallery has expanded its website, showing artworks by artists previously exhibited by the gallery.
Additionally, it is hosting a series of online talks by some of the artists it has featured in the past. Having kicked-off on 5th June with Linda Wilson, followed by Jenny Pope, Friday 19th’s talk is by Edinburgh artist Ron Wilson, speaking about about his varied career as an artist, designer and purveyor of books. On 26th June, Rhona Taylor will talk about some of her previous projects, as well as ideas about place, space and remoteness in the context of lockdown. Rhona is a visual artist with a studio at WASPS in Edinburgh, and the vice-president of the Society of Scottish Artists.
The Gallery plans to re-open on 29th June with an extension of Jenny Pope’s exhibition Evoking Change.
