Pop into the pop–up gallery

A FASHION store in Edinburgh is doubling up as a pop-up art gallery during the Fringe – with an exhibition by up-and-coming painter Sarah Muirhead.

Muirhead, who specialises in giant portraits of street characters in an ultra realistic style, will mount her show Dressed Up Truths At Urban Outfitters on Princes Street between 2 and 31 August.

Muirhead, whose fans include Kirsty Wark, Charles Saatchi and Kevin Spacey says her work is “less a celebration of superficiality – more a record of voyeuristic empathy”.

The launch of the exhibition will take place on 6 August between 6 and 8pm and will feature Soul Jam Hot DJs.

Work from the exhibition will be for sale, with prices available on request. Selected prints will also be available to order from the opening night.
