Maigie's Hoose by Helen Acklam

Postcards from The Line is a show which is anticipated with glee each year - both by our visitors and by ourselves. It is a delight to open the packets of little artworks which arrive from all over, and quite a thrill to piece together the huge jigsaw which will be the eventual exhibition. All work submitted is on a small scale, around A5 in total, nothing is presented in a mount or in a frame - and everything is pinned to a maximum price of £100. Many of the artists with whom we have worked over years submit work - often of a more experimental nature than can usually be expected from them. Therein lies a lot of the fun! We will welcome you - and as many of the artists as can manage to come along - to an hour or two of celebration on the afternoon of Saturday October 22nd, and the show will run until Sunday November 20th.

 In the Liminal Lands - Sarah Keast

An exploration of the sense of place, of the history of a location, of the essence of time passing and of the natural composition of somewhere as it changes over time. An evocation is print and paint - above, a study for In the cave - of those experiences that cannot be put into words but which can be felt. Those things just at the edge of vision - Sarah Keast lives and works in Moniaive and has exhibited at The Line previously. This body of work is the outcome of a concentrated period, some during lockdown, and we are very pleased to be able to bring it to Linlithgow for you all to enjoy. 

Do come along!

I'm a rabbit by Mickan Sandelin

The Line is delighted to bring back two artists whose work we have shown before, Eva Mia Sjolin and Hjordis Haack and to welcome Mickan Sandelin to Linlithgow.  In Between Light and Darkness each artist explores that space of uncertainty, the junction between what we know for sure and what we expect, or think we know.

Come along and see for yourself - we are sure you will not be disappointed!
