Saturday March 10 to Tuesday April 3 2018

Nikki Monaghan is a graduate of the Scottish College of Textiles. Her diverse range of work includes landscapes, seascapes , figures and animals. Nikki works on both large and smaller scale canvases. Her inspiration comes from the Scottish landscape and the everyday, creating colourful and textured paintings. We have exhibited her work at The Line on a number of occasions and are thrilled to have this opportunity to concentrate on her imaginative and appealing images. Nikki will exhibit work on a range of scale and media, and we are sure that everyone will find something on which to feast their eye and which will bring a smile to their faces.

Nikki's pieces will be complemented by a range of handmade harbour scenes by Morag Lloyds.

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.
