Newport Christmas Cheer

Featured Exhibition

DECADES, celebrating 10 years of Edinburgh LoFi photography group, a small group of like minded enthusiasts who collectively run the group, promoting and exploring creative ideas in photography. The exhibited work will be a complete contrast to the current crop of digital images, the majority of images being created on film through many types of old equipment, often very basic, sometimes lensless.

Will run from19th October until 23rd November. See our extended opening hours blog to cover this exhibition, lots of interesting and creative work.

Gifts

We now have a range of better class gifts, many sourced in Scotland. We have jewellery from Orkney, Sutherland, Stornoway and more, Silk scarves, cushions and lampshades by Clarabella Christie from Dunfermline, smoked ceramic seals and seabirds from Arran as well as our usual eco bamboo mugs and sandwich boxes, also some childrens designs, and felt animals from a fair trade cooperative in Nepal. Our featured gift shop is now downstairs in Gallery 3 where most gifts are on display. There are more lines due in shortly.

Opening Days

Our usual hours are every Saturday 11am to 4.30pm and we try to get in before 10.30 and are often still there by 5pm if the street is busy. .   We have an extensive range of new gifts, prints and cards in the Gallery now, with a major rehang of artworks. We may try to open through the week if we cannot manage Saturdays, check our instagram feed and this blog. We try to put the sign out when open having now acquired a wind resistant one which does not fall over !

With the opening of our featured exhibition "Decade", we hope to be open on Wednesdays 2pm to 5pm and Thursdays, 2pm to 7pm for those who cannot manage daytime. If for any reason we cannot manage to open, an announcement will be on this blog and on our instagram feed.

Saturday 26th October, we know our opening will be later, just after 1pm due to chairing a workshop over at DCA
