February 1 to 29 2020

It is always exciting to open a new season of exhibiting at The Line, and as we launch ourselves into our 25th year we are beyond thrilled to have a series of new paintings by Lucy Newton to welcome 2020. Lucy is well known to The Line audience, and her work is much appreciated throughout Scotland and beyond. For this show she has been working on an entirely new range, from which this Great Spotted Woodpecker is but one example - we have shown  Otter at dusk below just because we can't resist.

Do come along and enjoy Lucy's work, which will be on show until February 29th.

January 2020

Ah dear - 2019 has run ts course and we are a little jaded here at The Line. Time for a holiday! Elisabet and Gail are off to warmer climes and will be back at the end of the month to celebrate The Line's 25th anniversary and to open a new season of exciting and colourful exhibitions. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

Saturday November 30th to Tuesday December 24th

Tobias and the Angel, attributed to Titian
December is going to be a complicated month in 2019 - the celebration of Christmas, and the attendant preparation, is always busy and we have a General election on December 12th to contend with. I have just read that we may have no one, but two, referendums to look forward to in 2020 - and what better time to remember that We all need Angels .....
Since we first opened The Line in 1995 our Christmas mixed show has always been titled around the theme of Angels. Many artists over the years have responded with care and humour to the overall notion, and the exhibitions have been greeted with enthusiasm. We have followed the same pattern in 2019 and invited a wide range of artists to submit work of all varieties, 2 and 3 D, for your delight and pleasure, but with a slightly more focused title.
Elisabet and I would like to welcome you to the opening celebration of our annual Christmas show on the days of Linlithgow's marvellous Advent Fair, Saturday November 30th. The mulled wine will be flowing, the mince pies will be plentiful and you are all invited to come along from 1pm.

We all need Angels.

Tuesday 22 to Friday October 31 2019

By the time you read this Elisabet, with Talisker and Tig, will be on her way to Serbia to compete in the 2019 Field Trial World Championships as part of the Great Britain team, and I will be preparing for the 2019 Postcards from The Line exhibition. A very exciting and busy time for us here at The Line, and one which means that, for a few days, the gallery will be closed.

I will be here in the week of October 28th receiving Postcard submissions and hanging the show, so technically someone will be in the gallery and able to answer the phone etc. However, please do plan on coming along to the opening of Postcards on Saturday November 2nd from 2 to 4. We hope that many of the artists will be here to celebrate the opening of this popular annual event.
