November 2019: Thanksgiving

November 21st – 24th 2019.

Our Thanksgiving exhibition celebrated art and the work of ArtSquat – marking the end of our first full year of bringing art into the community.

Leamne Arias Deniz showcased colourful collages of Edinburgh – celebrating the vibrant life of our city. Our volunteer curator Eileen Taylor’s detailed monochrome designs portrayed her thankfulness for her mental health treatment, which keeps her well. Sally Richardson’s vivid paintings and sketches depicted scenes from her Colony community, which is an integral part of artistic Edinburgh. Ellie Clarke celebrated nature and nurture, with her paintings of the womb and motherhood.

The use of St Mary’s Cathedral, Palmerston Place was kindly facilitated by Rosemary Kaye, Cathedral Office Manager and the Provost, Rev John Conway.
