JaGGy-edge showed a vibrant and lively exhibition of work by seven artists using a diverse range of cultural materials, from traditional paper cut-out collage to sculptural assemblage and including painting, photography, animation and digital technology.

Artwork featured in the JaGGy-edge exhibition included a large scale landscape collage by Melanie Carvalho, hypnotic animations based on minature paintings by Shazia Sikander, a small scale painting based on a paper model of a historical painting by William Daniels, a kaleidoscope-like animation based on supermarket logos by Gunilla Klingberg, new collages by Tony Swain, sculpture by Jim Lambie, and a specially built installation by Ruth Claxton. For more information about the JaGGy-edge artists have a look at the word document below.

The exhibition travelled throughout Scotland from Argyll and Bute to Aberdeen, and was visited by over 7000 people. Here are some of their comments about the exhibition:

"It's changed my view of art, made me think of the hidden meanings. Interesting!" Pupil, Annan Academy

"I loved everything, it has inspired me to do some collages of my own" Pupil, Oban High School

The exhibition was accompanied by the Travelling Gallery education programme, which included artist-led workshops, an education pack and a free booklet for every visitor.
