About the Show
For two years the gallery has been hosting exhibitions of works by artists from all corners of the UK, and the latest show is a collection to celebrate the anniversary of the gallery. "When we established the gallery in 2007 we were keen not just to exhibit the best in contemporary Scottish art but to also attract artists from much further afield." Suzanne, the gallery owner said.
Elaine Jones is a good example - she's an exciting young artist from Bristol who paints evocative and abstract landscapes; we're especially pleased to make young talent such as Elaine accessible to a Scottish audience."
The exhibition includes a mixture of the emerging and established and presents new work by Jolomo Award short-list artist Rosanne Barr and fellow Duncan of Jordanstone graduate Cathy Campbell.
Exhibition features gallery favourites
"One of the gallery's most popular artists over the past two years has been Hugh Kirkwood." Suzanne said. The Invergordon-based artist who takes inspiration from Cursiter, Goudie and Raeburn, paints landscapes of the coastline between Inverness and Aberdeen that convey his emotions at the time of painting, and capture the colour and the mood of the landscape through his creative use of brushstrokes. Suzanne commented on Hugh's work, "The viewer can feel what Hugh and his subject matter are experiencing; Hugh is one of a number of artists who thinks that a painting is not a painting without people in it, and his figurative work has been very popular."
The artistic line-up continues with Cara Mckinnon Crawford, Margaret Evans, Yvonne Healy and Stewart Lammie. Preview the work.
Small Pieces
The exhibition also include a range of smaller works by Albie Sinclair and Gillian Allan. Albie, whose work has been very popular with only one-piece remaining at the Spring Exhibition earlier this year said, "The main focus of my work is the way different light, variable weather and human activity combine to affect the landscape; an isolated house, a field in sunlight, the edge of a ploughed field, a snow thaw or an old fence can combine into subtle or dramatic landscapes."
