A New Exhibition at Kilau, Little Belmont Street

A new exhibition of work from Sarah McGarva and Lola.

Monday 10th January – Saturday 26th February.

“From The Rooftops”

Sarah is that girl with the tangled curly hair springing out from behind her camera. She makes a living writing and designing and web editing for people who make a living making a difference, she spends most of her spare cash on books and cinema tickets, and she likes to portray herself as ridiculously crafty (although ridiculously good at procrastinating is closer to the truth).

Sarah been snapping and doodling for years, but this is her first exhibition. She’s got a lot of admiration for gritty realism but in her own home she’d rather have images which make her smile – and so that’s what she creates. She hopes some of these pictures put a smile on your face, too.

Sarah witters on a bit at www.sarahrooftops.co.uk and drinks a lot of tea.




By day Lola is a sensible girl who takes care of old books, manuscripts, glass plate negatives, photographs, papyri and ostraca. By night she loves to craft, blast her senses with music and films, and take photos every spare moment she has. She fell into this exhibition by accident, but then few Super Awesome things in life are planned.

She hopes one day to have her own dragon, and then maybe look for a prince.

A new exhibition of work from Jennifer McKinlay

Monday 13th September – Saturday 6th November

Jennifer McKinlay

4th Year Fine Art student at Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee.

As I am now entering my 4th year of study, I have been researching for my dissertation over the past few months and this has greatly influenced the works I have created for this exhibition.

Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are the main focus for my dissertation and it is the way that he skilfully uses the English language to create sentences that seem like nonsense but that actually have a clever and humorous meaning to them, that has really captured my interest. It has lead my thoughts to the meaning and origin of words, how grammar can change the meaning of a sentence and how imagery can help to influence how a sentence might be interpreted.

My drawings are both addictive and fun to create. The process begins with the choice of text and the image follows naturally. Although some of these works are simply based on silly thoughts that pop into my head, a couple have been created with people that I know in mind, and the rest of the works here started out life as well known idioms.

A new exhibition of work by Elaine Mackay

Monday 26th July – Saturday 11th September

Elaine Mackay

I graduated from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, in 2009 with BA (Hons) in Fine Art Painting.
I now live and work in Aberdeenshire.
My current working theme surrounds my ideas on understanding the growth and development of my own mindset in relation to other females. Also developing my own theories on how my personality is split between my dominant public persona and my submissive and insecure private persona.
I wish to depict the female symbolically through the use of flowers and curves and sensual shapes, using a rich and luxuriant colour palette and range of textures throughout every image. I aim to portray dark beauty and pleasure in developed sexual awareness and also in venting privately submissive traits whilst continuing to maintain a confident and self assured public persona.
