Artist in Conversation: Ruth Nicol

Ruth Nicol will give a talk on her new exhibition 'Leith in Spring' on Saturday 9 February at 11am   

Complementing her 2010 exhibition 'Leith In Winter', 'Leith in Spring' reflects on the ever-evolving historic port of Leith, where Ruth herself resides. Focusing on day-to-day routes taken ritualistically this exhibition showcases Leith's urban and industrial landscape, the paintings suggesting elements of movement and transience despite the absence of human activity. 

 This talk will offer insight into the exhibition's semi-autobiographical stance, documenting Ruth's passage from being an incomer to Leith and its community to becoming a fully integrated 'Leither'.   

To attend, please rsvp by emailing mail@openeyegallery.co.uk or by phoning 0131 557 1020. Places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. 

Please note that this is an informal talk and seating will be very limited.
