A Time for Angels - Christmas is approaching and thoughts turn to thoughts of family, of celebration and, above all, of Peace. There is a need for peace in so many ways in 2018 and into 2019, and The Line would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone, everywhere in the world, peace and security for the future.

To help on the way to domestic quiet and calm, we are delighted to bring together a mixed exhibition with pieces from artists in many media with whom we have worked throughout the last year. There are many names you will recognise and others which will perhaps be less familiar - but what there will be in common is good cheer, skilled work and lively imagination.

Come along and help us bring in the season of good will and peace to all - there will be mulled wine and mince pies for the opening of the exhibition on Saturday November 24th from 2 pm to 4 pm, our contribution to the splendid Advent Fair in Linlithgow and the show will continue until Monday December 24th.

The Line will be open on Mondays from Monday November 26th.

It is that time of year again - Postcards from The Line has become a much looked forward to event in our calendar and we are very please to confirm that the 2018 show will be here soon. Artists from all around Scotland, The UK and further afield are sending small, unframed works in a wide variety of media, some of which have arrived already. This is like a very early Christmas for Elisabet and Gail and we hope that you will feel the same!

Come along from 2 pm to 4 pm on Saturday October 27th to meet many of the participating artists (There are now over 35 and counting) and to view the over 300 artworks which will be on display. The exhibition will run until 5pm on Tuesday November 20th.

Silk thread and wooden boards. These are not the expected materials to be found in a seascape, but as you can see above, Helena Emman's Summer light on lilting seas is not the usual seascape. Helena's wound silk pieces are a very personal and time consuming means of reflecting the movement and colour of the sea at different times of day and weather conditions, the lustre of the silk, and the fullness of the thread used to define stillness and ripple, splash and reflection as the water moves.

In this exhibition Helena brings silk works and painting to The Line from her home on Skye, each piece part of her love and understanding of the environment which surrounds her and which she clearly loves. She will also be bringing some hand crafted copper pebbles, further proof, if any were needed, of her need to interpret and understand the world around her.

We are very much looking forward to the show, and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we certainly will!

The story of the birth and installation of The Kelpies at the Helix has been told and re-told throughout the world, and their creator, Andy Scott, has become well known. What may be less well known is the years of skill development, technique refinement and artistic understanding which underlie each and every proposal for artwork in the public arena. Each proposal for each location has, by its very nature, to be unique in order to reflect buth specific circumstances and requirements. That there are major pieces by Andy throughout the world is testament both to his expertise and the degree to which his work captures the heart.

The Line is privileged to bring both bronze castings and sketchbook detail to Linlithgow. Building on from the welcome received by the Kelpie Maquettes when shown at the Cross in 2015, and his booked out talk at Linlithgow Book Festival, we are confident that this exhibition will have a broad appeal.

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to come along and enjoy with us The One That Got Away ......
