Jewellery Quarter Welcomes New Art Gallery

Jewellery Quarter Welcomes New Art Gallery

Contemporary photography gallery Argentea has opened its doors on St Paul’s Square in the heart of the vibrant Jewellery Quarter.

The gallery will be showing contemporary photography from both British and international artists with the aim being to
promote and support the careers of emerging and established artists by providing a platform to exhibit their work.

The gallery opens with two exhibitions; on the white walled ground floor ‘Notes for an Epilogue’ by Hungarian photographer Tamas Dezso, whose large scale, painterly images depict a time of transition in Romania and Hungary following the fall of Communism in the late 1980s.

The gallery’s serene grey walled space is the perfect backdrop for Edinburgh based photographer Robin Gillanders’ contemplative ‘A Lover’s Complaint’. Comprising a series of intimate, black and white still life images, they are a visual
response to a series of haiku based on Roland Barthes’ book A Lover’s Discourse.
