Art in Lockdown

Lockdown had a profound effect both practically and creatively for those working in the arts. Hung in the sanctuary of St John’s Church, Just Festival’s visual arts exhibition, Art in Lockdown, comprises a selection of works by Scottish-based artists Catherine King, Lesley Anne Derks, Clare Yarrington, Shona Young and Ewan John created during the pandemic.
