A big thank you to all our funders

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our Art Happens campaign to tell the story of Scottish weaver and pop artist Archie Brennan. Thanks to 267 contributors we raised £25,633!

This allows us to bring together Archie Brennan’s masterpieces from the UK and further afield to stage the first major exhibition of his work, due to be held at Dovecot Studios in March 2021. We are delighted to bring Archie’s work to his native Edinburgh and give him the recognition he deserves.

The funds we raised beyond our target will also go towards sourcing and shipping Archie’s work. As he lived abroad for much of his life, seminal tapestries are held in collections all over the world and further funds allow us to seek these out.

We will keep you updated on the progress of bringing Archie’s tapestries together and the details of the exhibition. For those who chose a reward, these will go into production soon, and we will keep you updated about when you will be receiving them.

Thank you so much for your generosity, particularly during these challenging times, and for making Art, or Archie, Happen.
