While looking forward to reopening soon, Edinburgh’s Morningside Gallery continues to collect new paintings to show the world, currently online. Among the myriad artists showing new material is Skye-based Caroline Bailey RSW – new to the gallery, with a fantastic collection of landscape, seascape and still life paintings. And Jen Collee‘s large-scale Edinburgh paintings evoke the energy and rhythm of place – abstract and evocative, with their blurred edges and sweeping brush strokes.
Also on show are the beautifully-executed oils by Marion Drummond, whose colourful flower studies always impress with their vigorous energy.
And from 2nd April over sixty paintings from six Scottish artists make up the Gallery’s Sculptural Surfaces exhibition: the work of Alison Cowan, Judith Bridgland, Peter King, Alison McWhirter, Linda Park and Mhairi Mcgregor RSW is characterised by a three-dimensional quality, with dramatic textures and tactile surfaces bringing life to their subject matter – an object lesson in the possibilities of paint.
Finally, also viewable online, the Gallery has created a 360-degree virtual gallery tour, which will be the focus of a virtual private view of the Sculptural Surfaces exhibition, on Friday 2nd April at 6:30pm.
