The Scottish Society of Architect Artists (SSAA) will hold ART4X, its most ambitious exhibition to date, at The Sculpture Court, Edinburgh College of Art, from 21 to 24 January.

The exhibition features over 100 unique and accessible works of art by European architect-artists from Italy, France, Germany, Poland and Scotland. A number of invited ‘special guest artists’ will also be featured, including Kelpies sculptor, Andy Scott.

cornish-harbour_medART4X will raise funds in support of The University of Edinburgh’s renowned Patrick Wild Centre for Research into Autism, Fragile X Syndrome and Intellectual Disabilities. Visitors will also have the chance to view a series of highly unusual and colourful ‘Neuroscience Prints’ by The Patrick Wild Centre which, appropriately, bring together the seemingly disparate worlds of Science and the Visual Arts.

A charity auction will be held on the evening of 20 January, in advance of the opening of the exhibition. This will be hosted by media personality and Past President of RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects), Maxwell Hutchinson and guest auctioneer, Gavin Strang, of Lyon & Turnbull.

At this event, the first ever winners of the SSAA Student Prize will be announced and Honorary Fellowships awarded to a number of leading individuals in the sphere of the Visual Arts.
