Barbara Rae

I haven't been to the commercial galleries in Edinburgh for about two years. Going to see the Perpetua Pope gave me the impetus to visit 3 on Dundas St where a large number are located. Highlights include Willamena Barnes Graham prints at the Open Eye Gallery and Barbara Rae at The Scottish Gallery in the next room to Perpetua. There was a great book about her on display at the gallery with an interview where she explained her working methods and how a stay in the US changed her style fundamentally after getting the space to create on the floor instead of vertically.

After cake and coffee at Glass & Thompson - yum!
