Own Art’s guide to August in Edinburgh

4 July 2017

It’s nearly that time of year again, when thousands will descend to Scotland’s capital city for the single biggest celebration of arts and culture on the planet: The Edinburgh Festival Fringe
For the first three weeks of August 2017, performers will take to hundreds of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows including theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, musicals, opera, spoken word, and more.
Joining the festivities? Don’t miss out on these top art attractions whilst you’re there:

Edinburgh Art Festival 2017

Edinburgh Art Festival brings together the capital’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces, alongside new public art commissions by established and emerging artists and an innovative programme of special events. 
The vast majority of the festival is free to attend, and - as if it couldn’t get any better - Own Art member galleries Edinburgh Printmakers, Ingleby Gallery, and National Galleries of Scotland are all partners of the festival! Find out more information about their involvement, and download the Festival PDF guide here

The Craft Scotland Summer Show 2017

Own Art member Craft Scotland will open their infamous Summer Show on 04 August, right through until 24 August. 
The annual selling exhibition - offering Own Art throughout as an affordable payment option - showcases contemporary, design-led craft, all housed on the second floor of White Stuff, George Street, Edinburgh.
A haven for design-lovers, this is a shopping experience like no other, and a welcome break from the bustle of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
