February 3rd to March 6th 2018

We first exhibited work by north east England artist Rob Newton around ten years ago, when his masterly use of oil paint in expressing the skies over the fields around his home in Northumberland captured our enthusiasm and imagination. Over the years his practice has evolved, and now more printmaking is incorporated into his work. We are thrilled to exhibit Rob once again, this time at the start of The Line's 24th year in Linlithgow. To Catch a Line draws upon Rob's fascination with fishing and the rivers of the north east. Water and reflection, skies in all weathers, trees and fields are all represented in this, a major exhibition for the start of 2018.

We are delighted with the selection of work Rob has made to hang in The Line, and we take pleasure in welcoming you to the show which will open from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday February 3rd 2018. The exhibition will run until Tuesday March 6th at 5pm - we look forward to seeing you there!

January 2018

Gail and Elisabet would like to wish you and yours a very peaceful and prosperous 2018.

As is the practice for The Line at this time of year, our doors will be closed for a while and we will be taking our annual holiday. Linlithgow has done nothing to deserve either of us when we need a break, and we will be back in February with a programme of exhibitions for 2018 which we think you will find both interesting and attractive.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the opening of our 24th year of monthly exhibitions in Linlithgow - To cast a Line, a series of paintings and monoprints by Rob Newton which will open on February 3rd.

November 25 to December 24 2017

Often said, but undoubtedly true - time flies when you are enjoying yourself. 2017 has almost passed and here we are contemplating our Christmas exhibition once again. This will be our 23rd Angel here at The Line, the culmination of 23 years of bringing new and exciting artwork to Linlithgow in a wide range of media, size and ambition. Over these years we have worked with many hundreds of artists, from the local area, wider Scotland and beyond - and a good number of these will be showing with us again over the month of December.

The exhibition opening - on the afternoon of Saturday November 25th will, as ever. form part of Linlithgow's Advent day celebrations, and we will have the mulled wine flowing and the mince pies at the ready. Do please come along and join in the festivities, you will be very welcome.

October 28 to November 21 2017

It is that time of year again - over 35 artists, more than 250 pieces of artwork, no mounts or frames and nothing bigger than A5 in size - why, it must be Postcards from the Line 2017!

This exhibition brings us enormous fun and pleasure each year - after a few days and nights of stress and anxiety - but we do love it. Work is already arriving and I can tell you that we have seascapes and rodeo, moody landscape, birds and autumn leaves - and some wonderful native Americans. Each day is like a little Christmas, with brown paper parcels fastened with anything and everything coming into The Line. Some of our very favourite things ...

If you can, come and meet some of the artists and help us celebrate - from 2pm to 4 pm on Saturday October 28th, and the show will remain open until 5pm on Tuesday November 21. You will be very welcome.
