Alison Kinnaird MBE - Art in Glass - Edinburgh Festival Fringe Solo Exhibition 2019
Friday 02 August 2019

Some members will remember a visit to Alison’s studio in Temple; she gave us a very nice lunch and then we visited the grand house a mile or two away. Here are details of an upcoming exhibition

'Art in Glass'  Solo Exhibition
Edinburgh Festival Fringe
2nd - 26th August 2019    Venue 244

The Artist
Alison Kinnaird has an international reputation as an artist working in glass. She uses the ancient technique of wheel-engraving, often combining it with cutting-edge technology such as LED lighting.

Her work ranges from small intimate pieces to architectural scale projects and is in many public and private collections, including the V&A Museum, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and the Corning Museum of Glass NY.

The Venue
Shillinghill Studios
Temple Village, EH234SH

This solo exhibition will take place in the conservation village of Temple, 12 miles south of Edinburgh, in the converted church dating from 1832, which has been Alison's home and studio for forty years.

Shillinghill Studios are also the base of Temple Records, founded by her husband Robin Morton, which specialises in Scottish and Irish music.

The ruined church beside the studio was the headquarters of the Knights Templar in Scotland in the 14th century, and as well as enjoying the open studio exhibition in a spectacular building, visitors can discover this historic venue.





Hers is a fusing with the physical elements of glass of metaphysical elements of imagery and perceptions, inner worlds and 'otherworlds', symbolism, inherited belief and lost experience, time and timelessness'
Hugh Cheape, Royal Museums of Scotland
