Graham Rich: Anchored Under Red Rock at the Fine Art Society in Edinburgh is a selling exhibition of works from across the career of the Devon-based artist, whose works range from large scale installations to small, constructed scenes formed from the found remnants of boats and objects. Often dwarfed against a backdrop of sea-worn paint and the marks left by maritime use, his carved motif of small sailing boats serve as symbols of hope and struggle against tribulation. The exhibition and one of the included works take their title from the safe harbours of the red-rocked Devonshire coast, where Rich finds his materials. Also showing is Will Maclean: Narratives, featuring new and recent works by the RSA artist. A proponent of box construction art and the examination of found objects, he documents through the narratives in his works the cultural and practical traditions of Scottish Highlands and coastal communities.
