East Lothian Visual Artists and Craft Makers Awards – A Retrospective Exhibition

Since 2008, 30 locally based artists and makers have received an award to develop their practice. The awards have supported artists and makers to create new work, explore new techniques or experiment with new materials. This retrospective exhibition, at the John Gray Centre between 2nd March and 12th May, showed the work of 14 artists and makers who received awards during the period 2008–2012. The show was curated by Lucy Dunce. Listen here to Lucy introduce the exhibition.
