Quiet Cities01 Apr 2020 - 28 Apr 2020
The Gallery has recently been consigned a group of work by Edinburgh artist Stephanie Dees, built up over a number of years by a private collector. The artwork captures serene views of Edinburgh, Fife, London and Venice, beautifully rendered in acrylic paint and pencil. Each scene depicts quiet moments in busy places, devoid of traffic and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Perhaps these sensitive paintings mirror what we are all currently experiencing during lockdown, as Europe’s streets fall silent revealing a different kind of beauty.
For this special online exhibition, 15% of all proceeds made will be donated to the Sick Kids Covid-19 appeal - a charity set up to support the families of children being treated at the Sick Kids Hospital.
Just as we are experiencing at work and home, things are different at the Sick Kids. Families are having to cope with the impact of this outbreak on top of the distress of having a sick or injured child. The incredible NHS staff are working round the clock to make sure every child gets exceptional care throughout the crisis, but they need your help to reduce fear and isolation, and to comfort and support families when they need it most.
