Edinburgh born artist Andrew Crummy, best known as designer of The Great Tapestry of Scotland, is giving a talk at his exhibition at the Whitespace Gallery, East Crosscauseway, at 2pm today (Tuesday Feb 13).

Andrew will be talking about the relationship between his sunset paintings, drawings and tapestries, including the Great Tapestry of Scotland colouring book. His latest exhibition “Shoreline”, by Liz Fox and Andrew Crummy, on display at the Whitespace Gallery until Thursday 15th February.

Born in Craigmillar, Andrew is well known for large scale, collaborative work, most notably murals and tapestries documenting our diverse lives, heritage and community histories. He recently launched the Dundee tapestry which is having its premiere at the V & A in Dundee until April 28th.

Andrew is also busy working on another major collaborative project, The Cancer Tapestry, bringing people together who have experience living with cancer or been close to someone who has. A documentary film has been made about this project by Jon Gill, entitled “A Good Thing to Do: Andrew Crummy’s Cancer Tapestry”. Sponsored by Macmillan Cancer Support, the film was launched online on February 4 (World Cancer Day) and can be viewed on youtube (link below):-
