ArtSquat is a Scottish Charity registered as a SCIO – SC048197 – which supports artists on low income develop and exhibit work in a range of local venues. We link up with galleries, cafes, community centres and businesses, who provide space for artists. We also work with charitable groups and established artists to put on exhibitions for community benefit.About
Our next exhibitions will take place from 30th May to 17th June 2019 in St Mary’s Cathedral and Coburg House. We are focusing on the theme of ‘Home’, exploring homelessness, displacement and belonging. Our cathedral exhibition partners with charity ‘Rock Trust’ to raise awareness of youth homelessness through the images of 40 artists. Our Coburg exhibition features the photographs of homeless artist dB, who used a basic mobile phone to capture Edinburgh’s architecture when sleeping rough on its streets, his images conveying the isolation of a hidden city. Artist Sam, who exhibits alongside dB, takes on the theme of searching for an inner home through his own psychological journey. Ellie Clarke explores the womb as home with acrylic on canvas. Check in at the start of May 2019 for the times and directions to these exhibitions.
We have recently finished ‘3 Unframed’, an exploration of art and well being. Please visit our Projects page to see details of this and other previous exhibitions.
