HERITAGE Exhibition 2017

Castle Girnigoe

We are delighted to announce that our exhibition for 2017 will be held in Gallery TEN, 5 William Street, Edinburgh, EH3 7NG.

The title of the exhibition is Heritage and the work should respond to the theme of heritage in any way the artist sees fit.

Works will be selected for exhibition by a jury, and all work must be for sale. Gallery TEN will offer a prize to their choice of artist and will provide them with a show at some point in the future in Gallery TEN.

2017 has been designated as The Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology in Scotland.

Themes you might want to consider exploring in your work:

  • Landscape and people – their physical and emotional interplay from prehistoric times to the present.
  • Cultural heritage – thinkers, writers, artists, inventors. Our stories, crafts and traditions that have passed down through families and communities.
  • Conflict – how our nation grew through conflict and hardship both within and beyond Scotland.
  • A personal heritage journey.

We hope this theme will challenge you and inspire you to be creative. Further details can be found on the following websites –
