Scott’s intriguing work is being shown alongside internationally renowned artists Kennard-Phillipps at the Stills Gallery in Edinburgh during this year’s Edinburgh Festival. He took the bull by the horns and approached the artists himself and, after an extremely busy summer, is now significantly involved in their Festival programme.
“I’m helping Kennard Phillipps deliver workshops at a studio space in St James’s shopping centre, Edinburgh and I’ll be leading the workshops next week as they have other commitments.
The work produced in the workshops will become part of the ongoing installation currently at Stills Gallery.
I am also working with local community groups including a couple of homeless and mental health organisations. I’m producing new work for the show myself too. I helped install the full show at Stills, and had some input to the ‘War on War’ Room in the workshop space. I also have my own show on at Projectability in Glasgow until 29th August.”
His tutors are delighted that their hard work and skills have supported Scott at this innovative point in his artistic career. They especially appreciate the effort on Scott’s part to ensure community involvement in his work and build capacity into other organisations, a key aim that lies at the heart of Glasgow Kelvin College’s ethos.
Congratulations go to Scott and to the staff who have supported him thus far, and the College wishes him the best of luck in the future. More information is available at http://www.kennardphillipps.com/
