My debut painting exhibition opens at the Filmhouse cinema (Lothian Road, Edinburgh) from 3pm tomorrow. Please go along and have a look...
Until November 29th [UPDATE: Closing date has been extended until the end of 2009! - See this blog post], I will be exhibiting my 12fp(s) Film-inspired Painting Series in the corridor beside the cafe that leads towards cinema screens 2 & 3. For those not familiar with the Filmhouse, the corridor exhibiting my paintings is located on the left hand side of the building, diagonally behind the front box office and running alongside the cafe/bar area.
I'm planning to exhibit the 12 original Film-inspired paintings (which will all be available to buy) and as seen on my blog here, but as they get sold I plan to replace them with brand new Film-inspired paintings that will be premiering at the Filmhouse (they have not even been shown online yet!)...
The exhibition is free to view 7 days a week [Filmhouse opening hours are 10am-11pm]; but Scotland's leading independent cinema has much more to offer including:
- An exhibition of posters by Franciszek Starowieyski (pseudonym Jan Byk) in the cafe/bar area;
- The "food for a fiver" offer is available in the cafe/bar every day 3pm-5pm, but a great selection of fresh and affordable food is also available every day until 10pm.
- The shop beside the box office has a vast selection of DVDs for sale, as well as various postcards and cards.
- "The best, busiest and probably trickiest film quiz in the country" takes place in the cafe/bar area at 9pm on Sunday 13th December. It's free to enter, and you can have a team of up to 8 people!
- And throughout the month of November, various Film Seasons are focusing on the work of [NOTE: the following links will take you directly to the relevant Filmhouse page about each season]: Orson Welles, Jacques Tati, Polish filmmaker Wojciech Has, The Best of Czech Cinema (1999-2009), and the Filmhouse' own French Film Festival 2009.
