The Colony of Artists are proud to announce details of their 2010 exhibition.

The Colony of Artists show their work from their own home which allows visitors to experience their work in a very personal setting. The event has grown year by year and now attracts people from all over Edinburgh and beyond. With handcrafted jewellery, sculptures from textiles and glass, landscape oil paintings, photographs focussing on the female form, handmade books, botanical watercolours and lots more to visit at this year’s Colony of Artists exhibition 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. You can enjoy tea and cake at a couple of spots along the route and there are drop in workshops as well if you find yourself inspired to take part.
