Cove Park, in partnership with the Scottish Print Network and Edinburgh Printmakers, will host the Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer in June this year. Working between Edinburgh and Cove Park over a period of three weeks, this will be the artist’s first visit to Scotland. During this residency he will develop new work in print with Edinburgh Printmakers.

This residency is part of Below another sky, the first collaborative project developed by the Scottish Print Network (a partnership between Dundee Contemporary Arts, Edinburgh Printmakers, Glasgow Print Studio, Highland Print Studio and Peacock Visual Arts). Farmer is one of 10 international artists working with Scotland’s professional print studios during 2013 and 2014. Work produced by the artist during his time in Scotland will be shown at Glasgow Print Studio in July this year.
