MORE than 50 people took part in this year’s Newhailes Squared art initiative, launched at Newhailes House in Musselburgh.

Members of the community, volunteers and staff at the National Trust for Scotland visitor attraction got the chance to be creative on the subject of ‘Family’.

One of the main highlights of this year’s Newhailes Squared was nearly 100 submissions of artwork from pupils at Stoneyhill Primary School.

A spokesperson for the National Trust for Scotland said: “Once again, each piece is 10 x 10 inches in size, and these submissions have been delivered in every medium from painting, knitting, sculpture to collage.

“We have had over 50 submissions from the community, staff, and volunteers for our second Newhailes Squared exhibition. Once again, the range has been amazing and there have been some interesting and thought-provoking pieces of how people perceive Family, which was the theme for this year.

“We also had almost 100 wonderful submissions from Stoneyhill Primary School, which used the exhibition to ask the children for their interpretation of what family means to them.

“It is always a pleasure to curate exhibitions like Newhailes Squared, providing the local community with the opportunity to see their work in an exhibition space alongside professional artists, schoolchildren and all others who submitted pieces, in support of our charity’s objective to provide access and enjoyment for everyone.”

The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 3pm in the Stables Courtyard at Newhailes until Sunday.

Artwork from the Stoneyhill pupils can been seen on the walls and in specially made books.
