Art lovers are invited to mark their calendars for the 25th anniversary of one of the most popular exhibitions of the Edinburgh art season – the Art Friends of St Columba’s Hospice Exhibition. This year’s exhibition will be held on 2 - 4 June 2011 at Freemasons’ Hall on George Street, and will give guests the chance to purchase original and affordable art from famous artists in aid of St Columba’s Hospice.


Works from around 100 well known artists will be exhibited and for sale at the three day event, includingMargaret Ballantyne, John Brown RSW, Chris Bushe RSW, Michael Clark, Avril Jaques, Alan King, Liz Knox, Catriona Mann RSW, Iain McIntosh RSA, David Michie RSA, Craig Mitchell, Ethel Walker and Jacqueline Watt. Paintings, sculpture and jewellery will be exhibited.


The exhibition is organised by the Art Friends volunteers and has raised over £325,000 since it began 25 years ago. This has helped fund a range of important equipment for St Columba’s Hospice, including a people carrier that is used to transport patients to and from the Day Hospice.


Opening times are Thursday June 2nd and Friday June 3rd, 11am - 7pm Saturday June 4th, 11am - 5pm. For more information visit
