Between Lands is a group exhibition of 8 artists taking place at the Whitespace Gallery in Edinburgh from June the 28th until July the 5th in 2019.
Our Private View will take place on Friday the 28th of June 2019 from 6 – 8pm (all welcome and free entry).
As a group of artists, we first met at Edinburgh College of Art while undergoing Masters, Artist-in-Residence and paid technician programmes in the Textile and Illustration departments. Now as a group of emerging artists we aspire to come back together to showcase the development of our creative practices.
Your funding will go towards the renting of the exhibition space and marketing material needed for the show. Plus we have lots of incentives to send you in exchange for your generosity.
The work we are making for the exhibition will involve landscape in some capacity to tie our practices together loosely but our outcomes will vary greatly. From painting, drawing and printmaking, to sewing, collage and bookmaking the artworks will be diverse but they will work cohesively together.
Our lives and art careers have taken us to a variety of cities and countries and this will be reflected in the artwork. Katie Chappell will be using her month in India as a basis for her work and Karin Eremia will be using her current home of Athens as a source of inspiration for example. We hope our work celebrates different lands, different points of view and different cultures.

Risks and challenges
We hope to get a good response from the exhibition and with it being held in early July in Edinburgh there should be plenty of people looking for events at the time so as long as we advertise well there should be a good amount of passers by.
Working as a team can be a challenge but as we have all worked together in some capacity before and we are all artists with a passion for what we do, we're confident we can make the show a great success.
