Charles H. Mackie: Colour and Light is a temporary exhibition at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh. It explores the life and career of the Scottish painter and printmaker Charles Hodge Mackie (1862 – 1920), a figure who was well-known during his lifetime, but whose posthumous legacy has slipped into obscurity.


The exhibition showcases the breadth of Mackie’s creative vision and talents, featuring over fifty artworks from public and private collections across the UK.
