Bongo alumnus and fine artist Kirsty Whiten exhibits in RSA Open show

26 November 2015 -


Kirsty Whiten’s work will be familiar to anyone who’s been coming to The Bongo Club since we moved to our new venue on Cowgate.  Her paste-ups adorn most of the walls inside and the gate at our main entrance boasts one of her maginificent murals.  However, what most of our regulars won’t know is that Kirsty is herself a former Bongo regular, having had a workshop in our original venue (New Street) back in the late Nineties.

‘The RSA Open Exhibition has a long history of celebrating the best of contemporary practice. After having been part of the RSA Annual Exhibition for over 180 years, it now enjoys its own slot in the RSA Calendar. Drawing from artists across the whole of Scotland and beyond, this exhibition showcases around 400 works annually and features a wide range of small and medium sized works (max. 80cm in any direction) selected through open submission including paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs.’ (RSA website)

The show runs from 28th November – 14th February.  Entry is free.
