Hortari: Forgotten Explorers and Seekers

About Hortari: Forgotten Explorers and Seekers

Displaying the original paintings and stories from her book Hortari, author and illustrator Marie-Alice Harel invites you on a journey in the company of unlikely adventurers.

Her imagined characters remind us that we are all defining our own quests, often taking us to unexpected places, whether it be on the other side of the world or in a remote corner of our backyard.

Exhibition runs from Wed 7 Nov – Sun 9 Dec.

Sometimes the Centre’s exhibition space is not accessible to the
public because of a private function. Please call ahead 0131 556 9579 to check.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hortari: Forgotten Explorers and Seekers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
