The reputation they are all working to preserve is the one which has been built on years like 1973 during which Demarco, then operating from Melville Crescent, presented to Edinburgh the German artist Joseph Beuys, his French counterpart Gerard Gasiorowski (both 01 whom he will be exhibiting together again this Edinburgh Festival in a memorial show), Tadeus Kantor trom Poland and avant garde theatre lrom Yugoslavia. That's some reputation.

This month a short exhibition beginning on 16 July preludes another sale. George Wyllie has generously donated 200 works, Tom Wilson, proprietor otthe Open Eye Gallery has made special Ztst anniversary drawings (see illustration) and Richard Demarco himsell will be selling more 01 his own drawings. All the work will be sold at 4pm on Sat 19 July in aid 01 the Demarco building lund and bythat time they will know what the SAC is prepared to part with. Whatever that outcome, Richard Demarco will definitely be celebrating his coming 01 age at this year’s Edinburgh Festival. (Alice Bain)
