Time for a wee update and to stop hiding in my studio … June is going to be a busy month for me with two opportunities to see my work at Cupar Arts Festival 2016 and Leith Late 2016.
Cupar Arts Festival 2016
I will be making a new installation for Cupar Arts Festival next month. The exhibition opens on 18th June, and I will be in Cupar the week before making a new work for the Festival Hub at Castlehill (East Bridge)
Cupar, KY15 4HB.
I’m developing a new installation that will span the threshold between indoor and outdoor space and will be made from many umbrellas. If you have an umbrella you could contribute to the piece I would be especially pleased to use it. Cupar YMCA has a collection point marked CAF ‘Umbrella Collection Bin’ or contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org to contribute.
Leith Late 2016.
Juliana Capes’s new installation “Aquifer” opened today at SSA 2015 (Royal Scottish Academy, National Galleries of Scotland)
and has won the SSA Exhibition Prize 2015.
Merry Christmas Everyone!

Juliana is currently exhibiting at Wall Projects II, Montrose, Angus as part of EMPIRE,a SSA members’ exhibition curated by Gayle Nelson PSSA and Alan Bond SSA.
Preview: Saturday 25 July, 2-4pm
Exhibition: Saturday 25 July – Saturday 29 August 2015
Wall Projects II,
The Old Ropeworks,
13 Bents Road,
Montrose, DD10 8QA
Thursday (late opening): 12 noon – 6pm
Friday, Saturday & Sunday: 12 noon – 4pm
The gallery is based in the former premises of the Montrose Rope & Sail Co., a long-standing family business which still operates elsewhere in the area. The building’s spaces are redolent of its manufacturing past and of a period of international trade, when consumer goods were most often marked with the tag ‘Empire Made’.
SSA Members were asked to propose existing works or submit proposals for new works on the theme of ‘Empire’. Artists have been encouraged to explore the idea of Empire in its broadest sense, and may make historical or contemporary references to the subject. We imagine the exhibition to represent both big ideas and to draw attention to small details. We imagine it to reflect contrasting views on the benefits and disadvantages of Empire and to consider small scale personal empires as well as geo/political dominance and the practices of global commercial enterprise.
Wall Projects was established by Kim Canale eight years ago and the space consists of two modernised gallery areas on an upper level and a raw, post-industrial space on the ground floor, containing vestiges of its former use as a rope manufacturing enterprise. The premises have further rooms and outdoor areas which may inspire site specific concepts.
The exhibition is currently in development but will include works by the following artists:
Juliana is exhibiting in the White Arch at Hidden Door, a not for profit arts festival that takes place in abandoned or hidden places in Edinburgh from Friday 22 May to Saturday May 30 2015. The festival takes place at The Old Street Lighting Depot, King Stables Road, Edinburgh.
