Two Fringe exhibitions for Mrs Harris’ Shop!

Welcome to our 2017 Fringe exhibitions!

This year, we wanted to celebrate Fringe in a BIG way!  And, what better way to do that, but to go bigger?

At Mrs Harris’ Shop, in its usual place, we have a delightful exhibition  inspired by Alli Symons’ love of people and things Japanese.


And, at Caffe L’Incontro, in Gay’s Arcade in the city centre, we are showing more of Ian Corbett’s fabulous desserts, in Ain’t it sweet?


Reflections and reminiscences of Japan: Alli Symons

Alli Symons is a lover of things Japanese  –  and this passion has manifested itself in a series of works that reflect the simple style of art from Japan.

Alli has travelled through Japan many times; she has hosted many travellers and students in her home – and she is an avid collector of bits and pieces, including paper.

Her memories, treasured friendships, collections and recollections have come together to form this exhibition –  Reflections and reminiscences of Japan.

Enjoy Alli’s delightful pieces – the colours and textures – and the little surprises that found objects bring to them.

Visit Reflections and reminiscences of Japan during the Fringe season – the exhibition is open on Saturdays and Sundays 11am – 3pm until 19 March.



Ain’t it sweet: Ian Corbett

Who can forget the luscious oil paintings of desserts that Ian Corbett ‘brings to the table’?

And we think we’ve found a great spot where you can enjoy them.

Pop in to that fabulous little coffee shop in Gay’s arcade, Caffe L’Incontro.  Meet host, Federico, who makes terrific coffee and serves delicious meals – just the thing to have with Ian’s visual feast of gooey chocolate, glistening pears and sparkling jellies.

Perfect Fringe fare!  Ain’t it sweet  is on show, Monday – Saturday, during cafe hours until Fringe end.  The works are for sale!

Thanks to Federico and Caffe L’Incontro staff for joining us on this journey!
