Garden Gallery 2009

E-mail Print

ImageAfter last year’s successful Garden Gallery we are pleased to announce that we will be running another project over the summer this year.

Unfortunately we were not as successful in gaining the same level of funding as last year however, this has led us to create a new format for this year’s Garden Gallery that will still involve over 30 hosts and some interesting artists.

This new project will involve three artists, selected by the curators. Each artist will work with a group of hosts to produce a final artwork.

Although the outcome from this process may not be something displayed in a garden, each host will be working directly with an artist to form part of a larger work that will be completed and shown to the wider community.

The artists brief will be to examine how artists can contribute to communities through contemporary art projects and again our aim is to stimulate, excite and provoke discussion within the community. Work in progress will be displayed in Portobello from 22 August - 5 September, with a presentation of the artwork by the artist on 27 August.

We are currently sending out a call for artists and aim to have made our selection by the end of June.

We hope this project will be a fun and exciting opportunity to build on last year’s Garden Gallery. For more information please feel free to email us at

Big Things on the Beach is a public art trust in Portobello, a seaside suburb close to the city centre of Edinburgh, Scotland. It was formed by a group of residents in 2003 to explore the potential of the seafront as a site for engagement with public artworks by both emerging and established artists.

Since 2004 we have commissioned artists to create substantial temporary artworks, trained ourselves and others in the process of commissioning public artworks through international site visits and guest lectures and successfully raised funding to these ends.

Our current project - The Big Welcome - is supported by Creative Scotland, Portobello & Craigmillar Neighbourhood Partnership and Edinburgh City Libraries
