The Society of Scottish Artists Annual Exhibition opened at the Royal Scottish Academy last night. This is one of the largest regular contemporary art shows in Scotland. The exhibition is produced and funded entirely by artists with no public funding and will be open until the 10th of January 2023.

I’m very happy to be showing three of my memory box pieces – Memory Box X, XI and XIII. I can’t remember what happened to Memory Box XII.

Kinship at Edinburgh Printmakers

Christine Sloman_Lost Voices(a foreign country)_News


Kinship is the current exhibition at Edinburgh Printmakers where I am showing my artist book Lost Voices (a foreign country). This is a concertina style binding with 11 monotypes worked from found photographs of children. Although they probably lived long and vivid lives their identities are now lost – for me calling into question the validity of photography as a permanent record.

Pattern:Books at the Upright Gallery, Edinburgh

Christine Sloman_Seven Pieces_News


Pattern:Books is the annual artist bookmakers exhibition at the Upright Gallery here in Edinburgh. I am showing Seven Pieces, a concertina style binding made with collaged monotypes, which have been printed directly from leaves, seeds and feathers etc – some of nature’s patterns. They have then been arranged in the classic seven piece tangram form.
