Dear Recoat Supporters,
We are fast approaching our 6th birthday at Recoat. Since July 2007 we’ve been on European Tours, held international mural festivals, curated over 60 exhibitions at Recoat, created a 10 strong Scottish Collective and painted walls and vehicles with some of the finest artists in the world. Recoat has evolved and changed and it has become an Arts Hub beyond anything that we could have hoped for.
We are changing things up at Recoat this year. We have several large scale mural projects planned, including painting two at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and helping HEART (Health Education Art) paint murals across the city.
To manage these projects properly we have decided to close our present space with the intention of developing Recoat and reopening a bigger and better gallery in the future. Don’t panic, this is certainly not the end and we already have exhibitions booked in for when we open again and pop up shows that will run throughout the year.
To mark the beginning of something new and celebrate what has gone before, we are proud to present “RIP 323”, a group show that will bring together an eclectic mix of Scottish artists who will work for 1 week to fill the gallery and arch with varied, colourful murals that will cover canvasses that will then be available for you to buy and own.
Artists participating include the entire Team Recoat Collective- Susie Wright, Kirsty Whiten, Elph, FiST, Mark Lyken, Al White, David Galletly, Syrkus, Death Rattles and Rue Five alongside Fraser Gray, Throne, Chris MacFarlane, Jamie Johnson and more.
The exhibition opens on the 8th of June 7-10pm, all are welcome. The show will then be open till mid July open Tues to Sun 12-6pm.
Can’t wait to see you there.
Amy and Ali.
