Three jewellers and an illustrator have made a fine stab at Edinburgh’s continued DIY gallery renaissance over the last 18 months. Such and Such provided a calming, white-walled bastion for emerging artistic talent amongst the throngs and punches that Leith Walk’s boulevard could throw (you). Predominantly a space to showcase the work of the residents – Alex, Caroline, Dave and Charlie – they also threw open the doors to external collaboration and promotion; indeed as go reborn were fortunate enough to explore over a weekend in November 2010 at #GR4.
With one of the four Such and Such founders taking on new pastures over west they’ve decided, admirably, to re-group and start a new agenda later in the year rather than re-stock in the current premises. As a final send off at Brunswick Street a group show does doth its cap to the many creatives who have been involved along the journey.. a retrospective of sorts featuring:
Jessica Harrison, Rabiya Choudry, Ross Fraser Mclean, Jamie Johnson, Al White, Ben Seeley, Callum Monteith, Catherine Johnston, Rachel Barron, Judith Clark, David Anderson, Stuart McMorris, Kristen Orme, Alex Gibbs, Matthew Swan, Natalie Ryde and more TBC
The exhibition will run from 13th – 29th January, before the space closes in February. Open 14th – 29th Jan, 12-5pm daily
Preview Friday 13th January, 7-9pm
Hope to see you all there. And please, be punctual..
