Welcome to Elcho Artspace
, an online gallery created by Longniddry Parish Church and based in Elcho Road, Longniddry. We are a village in the county of East Lothian on the beautiful east coast of Scotland. Over the years Longniddry has shown a strong commitment to visual arts, principally through its fondly-remembered Christian Aid charity art exhibition.
Launched in July 2020, this website actively encourages people of all ages to explore and share both creativity and spiritual insight through art. Our contributors can be from anywhere, whether nearby or around the world.
Instructions on how to enter and move around the gallery are found in the "HOW TO ..." page at the foot of the website.
You are warmly invited to submit your pictures to Elcho Artspace on our current or future themes. They should be scanned and saved in JPEG or TIFF format, then sent via e-mail to the address below (rectangular or square only please).
Shows are staged periodically to reflect the unfolding seasons. Our gallery is something of a changing room, so even in the course of an exhibition it's never too late to submit your artwork.
