Here are some officialish photos of the exhibition!

Here are the photos that I took of the install and opening. As you can tell, install was quite intense so photos were put on the back burner in favour of getting the work on the walls!
“Official” exhibition photos will be up later in the week.
We had such a lovely evening, and would like to extend our thanks to all who came and celebrated the opening with us.
The show is open for another week! From 11-5:30pmish each day, and 11:30-3:30pm Sundays.
In April my computer hard drive failed and between work trips and holidays it took a little while to get it fixed. And then when it was fixed I was suddenly off again to England with work! So all in all I am massively behind with everything.
The next couple of posts will be my favourite bits from the DJCAD Degree Show 2013.

Probably the creepiest thing in the show.
I will be showing completely new work for this show, which is incredibly exciting for me. I have kept it under wraps as I feel like it should be shown at the gallery first, but over the next couple of weeks I will be showing it on here too.
If you are down in Edinburgh at all over the next two weeks, do pop in and have a look!
Have you ever wondered what really makes an image ‘obscene’, or thought about how one might ‘wear’ their gender? What about a mermaid taken out of the sea and popped in a bathtub? What might it be like to peep behind the burlesque stars glamour or to step inside a dream? Is a perfect imperfection as close as we can ever get?
Any.And.Or. is a new artist collective including works of photography, film, painting, prints, performance and installation. Their first group exhibition brings together the works of six female artists studying and working in Scotland.
For each artist what makes up the ‘self’ takes many different forms. The works put together for this exhibition provide a picture of what it is to be; as an artist; as a woman.
Inaugural group show curated by Any.And.Or Artists Collective.
Coburg House Gallery, Leith
PREVIEW: Thursday 11th July 5:30pm – 9pm
CONTINUES: Friday 12th-Wednesday 24th July 10:30-4:30 (11-3:30 Sundays)
Travelling so much has not left me much time to do anything art related recently, but I thought it would be nice to update you with the plans for ANY AND OR. We have a date!

We are thoroughly immersed in planning, developing and designing this exhibition and are starting to create things like websites/blogs/social media. The idea is to create a platform for each of us to work from in the future whilst maintaining our places in a collective, so we’re taking it pretty seriously!
Though there is not much to see yet, here is the new BLOG. This will be up to speed as soon as possible with our graphics in place. Add it to your favourites, for soon it will be!
