WITTY CERAMICS by the South African Hylton Nel (pictured on display in cabinet, right) and elegant pieces by the British potters Rupert Spira and Julian Stair star in the opening show of a new Edinburgh arts venue, Ingleby Gallery. Set up this summer by Richard and Florence Ingleby, it specialises in 20th-century British artists.

During the Festival, its walls are aglow with etchings and lithographs by Howard Hodgkin (until 12 September). Future treats include totemic tapering sculpture by Craig Murray-Orr (30th September to 31 October) and Andy Goldsworthy's dazzling nature art (from 11 November to 19 December).
