The exhibition brings together painting, drawing, sculpture and applied arts that provoke curiosity and question ideas surrounding space and the built environment.

Andrew Mackenzie has recently completed a major commission for a building in London - Number One Kingsway. It can now be viewed permanently in the main entrance to the building, on the corner of Aldwych and Kingsway. It consists of 3 paintings, each 125 by 122cm, based on layered plane trees and architecture from the street outside the building.
Andrew Mackenzie recently made his first wall drawing in a fairly remote bothy near Ettrick Pen, on the Southern Upland Way. It's at the very top of the Ettrick valley in the Scottish Borders and is part of the WAY project, an installation involving 5 artists/poets - Liz Douglas, Mary Morrison, Allan Harkness, Kate Forster and himself. It's a great project and well worth the trip up there. Map ref: NT182082. If you'd like a leaflet with images and text by all the artists (they're nicely produced), please get in touch. The work is there May and June, but his drawing will stay until someone paints over it. Read more.

Seven Short Sails
What is Seven Short Sails? Initiated by artist Pat Law, based in Heriot in the Scottish Borders, it is a creative chinese whispers...the starting point - 1 sailing boat, 7 short voyages and 7 artists. All in northern latitudes. There are cultural similarities and parallels between artists living at these latitudes; ways of living and seeing dictated by climate, daylight, geography and tradition, and this series of responses will unwittingly reflect those elements.
7 artists have responded to 7 sets of material which took the form of sketches, stories, paintings, photographs, conversations, and the outcome will be shown here. These responses will be passed onto another 7 artists and so on... for a total of 7 phases/50 artists.
