Gibb's trips to Belfast, London, Moscow, Skye and Venice have influenced her art (and her fascination with buildings), and the 12 sketchbooks she used for her one-a-day drawings will be on show in 12 frames on the Lighthouse's fifth floor, just outside the cafe.
Gibb has also made what she describes as "a kind of Japanese screen with all 365 drawings printed on silk", while a TV screen slideshow will also display the full set of drawings.
Questions over film festivals
The role of the modern film festival has been put under the microscope in a book overseen by a cinema academic at St Andrews University.
The Film Festival Reader, edited by Professor Dina Iordanova, includes contributions from filmmaker Mark Cousins, Edinburgh International Film Festival artistic director Chris Fujiwara and former film critic for Le Monde, Jean-Michel Frodon.
Among other topics, the book questions whether film festivals raise the prestige of movies screened, thereby increasing their box office potential, or whether they in fact close off a more diverse range of cinema to the wider public.
The Film Festival Reader is published by St Andrews Film Studies Publishing House.
First meeting of Graham society
As the first Socialist member of the UK Parliament and first president of both the Scottish Labour Party and National Party Of Scotland, Robert Cunninghame Graham is assured his place in the history books.
What is less assured is the legacy of his own work as an author, and that is the subject that will be discussed at the inaugural meeting of the Cunninghame Graham Society, which is at 7.30pm on October 11 at The Hidden Lane Gallery in Argyle Street, Glasgow. Membership is open to all.
