THE COLONY OF ARTISTS IS AN ECLECTIC EXHIBITION IN THE ARTISAN COMMUNITY OF the ABBEYHILL COLONIES, EDINBURGH where Our community of artists will be exhibiting in their own homes & other venues throughout Abbeyhill.
2019 celebrates our our 14th year, and we will showcase the past and present of this vibrant area in the heart of the capital. Exhibitions, talks and live music will chart the cultural heritage of the Abbeyhill Colonies and their surroundings.
This community organisation, run by volunteers, provides a platform for exhibition to artists in any medium. Creatives who live in, or have a connection to, the Abbeyhill Colonies are welcome to take part.
Our aims are to promote artists’ work, bring the local residents together, nurture the community ethos and care for the long artistic heritage of the area.
