ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS – BE A FRIEND AND MAKE FRIENDS
Founded in 2015, from the former Friends of the Talbot Rice Gallery, we are a voluntary organisation and a registered Scottish charity. Our primary aim is to support art activities at Edinburgh College of Art, the art collections of the University and the Talbot Rice Art Gallery.
The collections of Edinburgh College of Art and the University of Edinburgh are now in the care of Centre for Research Collections. As a bridge between the University and the wider community FEUVA provides a unique opportunity to publicise and increase enjoyment of these extraordinary collections.
We support, through the University’s programmes, all forms of art-making from applied arts to film, and sculpture to architecture, as well as the University’s rich collections of historical portraits, sculpture, ceramics, and its more recently acquired collections of student work and gifts from artists.
To fulfil these aims FEUVA, in partnership with curatorial and other staff of the University, will raise funds through subscriptions, ticket sales and by seeking private sponsorship. The Friends will benefit from a programme of social events, lectures and special visits.
