Art exhibition opens at UK Airport

A new art exhibition showcasing top Scottish talent has opened in Edinburgh Airport’s new terminal extension.

‘Art at the Airport’,  a collection of around 40 paintings by fourteen
artists,  is displayed at the entrance to the airport’s £19m south east

The exhibition features a wide variety of watercolours and oil paintings,
including Pat Kramek’s vibrant scenes of Scotland, Niall McWilliam’s
textured oil abstracts and bright harbour scenes by Sara Mead.

Organiser of the exhibition, Jan Riley, whose own artwork is on display,
said:  “It struck me that the airport is an ideal space to showcase
Scottish artistic talent in a really different way. It’s effectively an
open all hours gallery with a very large and diverse audience. It also
gives passengers something else to do while waiting to board a plane.”

Managing Director of Edinburgh Airport,  Richard Jeffrey, added: “The
entrance to our new south east pier has proved the ideal blank canvas for
this exhibition,  which really brightens up the space. Art at the Airport
is a unique and exciting venture and we are delighted to be able to offer
our growing number of passengers the opportunity to enjoy this experience
at the airport.”
