Inception returns this May to Dalkeith Palace showcasing a curated collection of inspiring artists. This year 35 modern and contemporary sculptors, photographers, artists and painters are invited
to ‘take over’ The Palace. Over 10 days art lovers will have access to the artists and their work with an inspiring additional programme of events.

New to the exhibition this year will be an evening Art and Supper event with Scotland’s most influential contemporary art advocate – Richard Demarco CBE and selected Inception
artists; along with a programme of artist-led workshops, curator and Palace tours.

Established South African painter, Jonathan Freemantle, will return to Inception for a third time exhibiting his new works. Jonathan said:

“Seeing my paintings hung in such a magnificent space is always exciting, the dimensions of Dalkeith Palace are spectacular. The community gathered around this annual exhibition is delightful.”

Additionally, an online charity auction in aid of Make 2nds Count will be held in partnership with The Auction Collective. This addition to the Inception programme gives art lovers the opportunity to bid for works by many of the Inception artists, painters & photographers, all for a worthy cause.

Emma Hall, Head of Operations, Make 2nds Count said

“We rely so heavily on fundraising and donations and are thrilled that The Park is supporting us through their Inception Art Show. The funds raised will help us give hope to those affected by secondary breast cancer.”

Anderson Strathern arre to be the exhibition’s first ever headline sponsor supporting the third year of Inception Art Show.

“The Inception Art Show is a much-anticipated event for lovers of contemporary Scottish art so we’re eager to lend our support. It’s wonderful to see communities coming together to deliver such a vibrant arts festival.” said Murray McCall, Managing Partner, Anderson Strathern.

The exhibition is open daily from Friday 5 May to Sunday 14 May, from 10.00 to 16.00. Entrance tickets to the Inception Art Show cost £3 and can be now HERE.
