myths & legends: from the ancient to the modern, edinburgh printmakers

Toys From The Myth Kitty by Robert Crozier, courtesy of Edinburgh Printmakers
More than 30 printmakers explore their own ideas of folk tales and myths in culture, in Scotland and beyond at the treasure trove that is Edinburgh Printmakers, from Kate McKay's pre-Raphaelite/obsessively detailed drawings of her own personal mythologies and Gavin Johnston's moody barren landscapes that hint at hidden stories to the gothic dream cartoon world of Eleni Kalorkoti's Slavic Shrine and the wryly subversive linocuts of Robert Crozier (work pictured) which make best use of his ludic wordplay (though he's also a fine poet).

Edinburgh Printmakers, to 23 Dec
