Spirit Of Air - Lizzie Farey @ The City Arts Centre, Edinburgh

Just over a week ago I went to see Spirit Of Air, Inscriptions by Lizzie Farey at The City Arts Centre in Edinburgh. It is a completely uplifting exhibition.

I had such a lovely day - I met up with my cousin, her partner, and their nine week old baby. Little baby Rosa was fascinated by all the exhibitions that we took her to see.

We started at the Gallery of Modern Art and saw Alasdair Gray's paintings. We then walked through the very snowy streets of Edinburgh and went to see the three Vermeer paintings at the National Gallery of Scotland.

And finally, on to the City Arts Centre and Lizzie Farey's exhibition. My cousins had been to Lizzie's studio during Spring Fling, so they know how she worked, but they hadn't seen her latest large scale pieces. 'Aerie', as you ascend the stairs to the the exhibition, is quite beautiful and looks perfect in the space.

Spirit of Air is on until the 27th of February 2011.
