February 2019: ‘3 Unframed’

Our exhibition ‘3 Unframed’ took place in February 2019 in a free space under the Hand Made Factory in Edinburgh’s Haymarket. Three artists, Timea Czakvari, Rhidian Crichton Stuart and Sally Richardson, whose creative journeys began in difficult and at times traumatic circumstances, displayed a diverse range of work.

The first weekend and opening night saw approximately 100 people attend. The following week and final weekend was quieter, with the overall estimated attendance at around 150.

Members of the public fed back positively not only on the quality of work, but on the ‘jazz basement cafe’ environment and the vulnerability in the artists’ stories displayed on the walls. Some shared their own experiences of working within the mental health field or experiencing difficulties themselves.

The artists described the experience as ‘magical,’ ‘rewarding’, ‘amazing’ and ArtSquat as ‘professional and friendly.’

ArtSquat would like to thank the Hand Made Factory for enabling us to exhibit entirely without cost and for the help and support provided throughout.
