SUMMER!

opens Sunday 5th July with a second chance to meet the artists on Sunday 12th July.

All are welcome to these events.

Sarah, Ulla, Linda and Kirstie combine to produce this beautiful varied exhibition. Sarah is a professional gardener and microlite enthusiast; her work includes striking aerial images of East Lothian. Ulla is a familiar face in Penicuik, from Pen-y-Coe Press and Open House; the show features her intense landscapes and figure paintings. Linda also volunteers with Penicuik Community Development Trust; her love of local landscape is reflected in colourful pastel and watercolour paintings.      Kirstie’s project to assist elderly people to create art was highlighted at Penicuik Library last year; she interprets landscape in atmospheric paintings and collages.
