November 25 to December 24 2017

Often said, but undoubtedly true - time flies when you are enjoying yourself. 2017 has almost passed and here we are contemplating our Christmas exhibition once again. This will be our 23rd Angel here at The Line, the culmination of 23 years of bringing new and exciting artwork to Linlithgow in a wide range of media, size and ambition. Over these years we have worked with many hundreds of artists, from the local area, wider Scotland and beyond - and a good number of these will be showing with us again over the month of December.

The exhibition opening - on the afternoon of Saturday November 25th will, as ever. form part of Linlithgow's Advent day celebrations, and we will have the mulled wine flowing and the mince pies at the ready. Do please come along and join in the festivities, you will be very welcome.

October 28 to November 21 2017

It is that time of year again - over 35 artists, more than 250 pieces of artwork, no mounts or frames and nothing bigger than A5 in size - why, it must be Postcards from the Line 2017!

This exhibition brings us enormous fun and pleasure each year - after a few days and nights of stress and anxiety - but we do love it. Work is already arriving and I can tell you that we have seascapes and rodeo, moody landscape, birds and autumn leaves - and some wonderful native Americans. Each day is like a little Christmas, with brown paper parcels fastened with anything and everything coming into The Line. Some of our very favourite things ...

If you can, come and meet some of the artists and help us celebrate - from 2pm to 4 pm on Saturday October 28th, and the show will remain open until 5pm on Tuesday November 21. You will be very welcome.

September 30 to October 24 2017

Keast & Thorin
"My work is motivated by my life-long connection to the environment.  I get out and walk and cycle here most days rain or shine. The light and the colour is always changing."
Whilst the above is part of Sarah Keast's description of her creative process for the work to be included in this exhibition, it can equally be seen in Siljes Elisabet Thorin's practice and output. Each of the artists exhibiting in this exhibition is rooted in the countryside, taking inspiration from what is around them - both now, in the past and with a hint of what may be to come. Sarah is a print maker of great experience, Elisabet's black and white photographs grow from strength to strength and gain in impact as time passes.

We think you will enjoy this exhibition which combines image making from different disciplines, but with a central interest you will find absorbing.

September 2 to 26 2017

Wildlife artist Lucy Newton is well known to The Line and our visitors, and her work both captivates in its immediacy and fascinates in its accurate detail. This is a show which is being prepared as we write - the contents remain largely in the eye of the artist. As a taster of what is to come, this Goldfinch and Fawn are here as ambassadors of the work that will fill The Line in September.

The exhibition will open on Saturday September 2nd and continue until Tuesday September 26th. You will not want to miss it!
