Colony of Artists 2009 Annual Exhibition

Date: 5th and 6th September 2009

Time: 1 – 5 pm

Venue: Abbeyhill Colonies

The Colony of Artists are proud to announce details of their 2009 exhibition.

The Colony of Artists are a group of artists who reside in the Abbeyhill Colonies, Edinburgh. The earliest residents of the Abbyehill Colonies were a skilled class of artisan builders and the current group, formed in 2005, have come together as a community our colony predecessors would be proud of. The Colony of Artists show their work from their own home which allows visitors to experience their work in a very personal setting as well as being able to enjoy the uniqueness which is the Edinburgh Colonies. The event has grown year by year and now attracts people from all over Edinburgh and beyond. This is a really exciting weekend bringing together people living in the Abbeyhill Colonies, their friends, family and the rest of Edinburgh !!

Building on the success of previous exhibitons the event this year will include over 20 artists from all fields as well as primary school students from Abbeyhill Primary school, and from Stepping Stones, a community based arts project for adults with mental health issues.

Refreshments will be available from our tea tent.
