If you spot a bus called Klook-Klook on the streets of Edinburgh this week and next and are wondering what on earth it is, we’re here to help.
The distinctively decorated vehicle is in fact The Travelling Gallery, and has been bringing art to the masses since 1978.
Its current exhibition explores the relationship between humans and animals, and features a broad spectrum of different types of art – including painting, taxidermy, poetry and film.
The Travelling Gallery is curated by Alison Chisolm.
“I think everyone will find something to enjoy,” says Alison.
“The animal theme is universal but we also have a line up of really brilliant Scottish artists alongside international work.”
Admission to the exhibition is free and artists featured include Charles Avery, Andrea Roe, Edward Summerton and Kirsty Whiten.
