On a Small Scale 2017- OPEN NOW


On a Small Scale 2017

Through its 20 year history, the Open Eye Gallery’s annual On a Small Scale exhibition has become a much-loved highlight in the Edinburgh art calendar.

The gallery invites selected artists to submit works in any medium with the only restriction limiting the dimensions to 15 x 21 cm, the classic ‘postcard’ size. Placing the most established names in Scottish art alongside artists at the beginning of their careers, the exhibition celebrates the scope of contemporary art in Scotland.

Displayed unframed, in a grid, exhibiting artists show works that either relate to another body of work, or are individual insights into their practice. Without theme or restraint, the exhibition covers a huge variety of medium and content. Over 400 works will be on display. With prices starting at under £100, the exhibition offers a brilliant entry point for new collectors looking to acquire original, affordable artwork.

Please note the gallery will close at 2pm on 23rd December.
