Homestead Exhibition

Saturday 10th February to Saturday 30th March 2024
Mon - Sat 10am - 5pm, free entry

Homestead is an exhibition of new work by Out of the Blueprint artist-in-residence and illustrator Lauren Cory, exploring themes of identity, change and belonging.

Inspired by retro video game graphics, Lauren uses repetitive motifs and patterns with a deliberate care and attention to detail that harks back to more traditional domestic textiles like tapestries, rugs and cross-stitch samplers. 

Framed with delicate pixel designs, Lauren’s hand-drawn pastel landscapes blend the cosy, nostalgic comfort of home with the sense of something bigger on the horizon.

See more of Lauren’s work on Instagram (@lovelylawn) or take a look at the Out of the Blueprint website.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 10th February to Saturday 30th March, Monday to Saturday (10am – 5pm).  Free entry.

The Drill Hall Cafe will be open throughout serving teas, coffees, breakfasts, lunches and snacks.

Exhibition Launch: Friday 9th February, 6pm – 8pm. Full details to follow.

    Over the course of 2024 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
