Those who miss both the fair and that gallery's range and style of work should make an appointment to visit its own premises in Parnie Street in March instead, when a new exhibition of work by Jane Gardiner, Donald MacLeod, Alan Beveridge and Lowrie herself opens, under the title Spring in the City.


l The 50th anniversary of the death of Joan Eardley, at the age of just 42 from breast cancer, is being marked by the Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh's Dundas Street, with a selling exhibition in April.

The exhibition includes some of those alongside 30 pieces of art for sale and will run from April 3-27 before moving to the Portland Gallery in London.
