Still Spaces: The Allotment Project

02-05-2013 - 25-05-2013

The increasing popularity of owning and cultivating a plot and ‘growing your own’ has particular socio, economic, political and environmental relevance today. This prompted us to invite selected artists to interpret the theme and create a special work for our exhibition. The artist’s vary greatly in style and medium, so, exploring this wide and fascinating subject, their interpretation of the social and cultural impact of the allotment heritage in Scotland with the history, the structures, the people and their crops will, we are sure provide an uplifting sensory and visual experience for the onlooker. Allotments, Still Spaces, even tiny patches of carefully tended earth, provide not just physical sustenance but also endless hours of spiritual and emotional comfort and joy.
