Dates and Details

The exhibition includes drawings, signed and newly reproduced prints, bronze and plaster sculptures, printing plates, and memorabilia.

It's been specially curated to show the process of Hannah Frank's development from her early works as a talented university student to her later drawings and subsequent focus on sculpture, drawing links between the different periods of her work to draw out her unique, mystical style. 

There are regular tours most Monday afternoons (including three which are adapted for people with visual impairment), four Open Workshops on Wednesday afternoons in January where you can make your own creative response to Hannah Frank's work, two Hannah Frank walks, and a family Chanukah Card Making event in partnership with the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (SCoJeC). 
There are also two  guided visits to the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre at Garnethill Synagogue, to see the extensive collection of Hannah Frank's diaries, letters, scrapbooks and other papers and four Friday lunchtime talks in January and a book launch in February. Please join us!

Many thanks to our volunteers Geanina Beres (design & curatorial lead), Lilith Charlet (schools coordination), Sylvie Rowland (youth and elderly groups), Jessica Green (communications and tours), Lisa Chamberlin (disability access) and Erin Stewart, Intern Coordinator. They've all played a full part in the marketing, social media, curating and planning of the show - you'll get to meet them all at the opening night.
Here they are working on plans for the exhibition, and practising with the electric drill ready to attach D rings to the drawings.

We still have limited availability for some special tours or workshops - get in touch to arrange something for your school or group.
looking forward to seeing you soon
best wishes
