Print Fusion

Print is one of the most consumer-friendly art mediums around and this little display proves no exception. All the works displayed on the crowded gallery floor can be purchased. Prices range from the mid-thousands for large wall-mounted pieces by the likes of Andrew Mackenzie and Rebecca King, through to about £100-300 for smaller prints. A few tiny bargains also make an appearance.

Gallery TEN represents a number of mainly local artists, whose works are jumbled together in this exhibition-cum-sale-floor. Browsing through the racks affords an enjoyable twenty minutes or so. It’s pleasant, undemanding fare, of good quality and with several small delights tucked away. Aesthetic considerations are very much to the fore. Traditional printmaking mixes with newer mediums such as digital editing - as in Tom Leighton’s bewildering composite cityscapes. Don’t expect anything groundbreaking, though. Photography is often a key component, though it’s the bold, imaginatively coloured illustrations that enchant the most. Edinburgh is a common inspiration – perfect, perhaps, for those with a few hundred pounds to invest in a keepsake of their time at the Fringe.

Those led to expect a curated exhibition will be disappointed, but casual art lovers and browsers will find nothing to object to and plenty to admire.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
