Mixed Exhibition – January / February 2016
<strong>The Mixed Show starts with an Opening Night on Friday 15th January from 6-8pm and runs through to 28th February</strong>. As usual we try to show a mix of traditional, older works by well known Scottish names from the past alongside current mainstream artists as well as emerging artists both local and from further afield.
For this exhibition we are delighted to be showing the work of another of my favourite artists, Matthew Draper. Matthews handling of light in his land and seascape pastels is breathtaking. His work is regularly on show at the most well respected galleries across the UK so its a real treat to get some of his work here in North Berwick. Not to be missed!
Also new to the gallery for this show is the work of Dominique Cameron, a recent graduate from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee, Dominiques observations of the changing seasons living on the coast in the East Neuk should resonate with people on this side of the Forth.
We will also have some abstract mixed media landscape work by local artist Jean Laing and also new to the gallery, Allan Roberston, a graduate from Edinburgh College of Art who works on industrial landscape painting will also be here for the first time with a couple of interesting and haunting pier studies.
Also in the mixed show will be a few “hot of the easel” pieces by George Birrell, again not to be missed. Jayne Stokes, Angela Reaping, Georgina Bown and Andy Heald will have some new work on show and a few exquisite, reclaimed wood sculptures from Michel Rulliere.
As well as current artists work, we also have a few recently acquired pieces by John Houston, Patrick William Adam (who used to live next door to here in Ardilea a hundred years or so ago!), John Bellany and few others if we can find the space!
Hope you can make it along.
