Robert Callender – A2B


This exhibition celebrates the ideas, working methods and continuing influence of the late Kinghorn based Scottish artist Robert Callender’s substantial creative output. Still recognised as the ultimate in the craft of art making, Callender’s work employs an exquisite level of precision to explore the relationship between environment, inhabitants and coast.

Featured within the exhibition will be the newly published A2B limited edition work. This is a box holding a rich collection of books, film and many other items including a specially editioned original print.

A programme of themed children’s workshops will run on Mondays at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, linked to A2B.  All have limited spaces, so places should be booked (enquiries@scotfishmuseum.org / tel 01333 310628).  Each workshop costs £3 per child:
