The Whitehouse Gallery in Kirkcudbright reopens its doors on April 26 with two exhibitions spread over two floors. The spring exhibition New Beginnings (shown online only so far) is joined by a new exhibition, Melting Pot, featuring an eclectic mix of paintings, photography, mosaics and mirrors. New artists to the gallery are fine art photographer Benedict Ramos, Highlands-based landscape painter Clare Blois, semi-abstract landscape artist Siobhan O’Hehir and contemporary artist Elisa Lafuente, who ‘merges the outside with what is felt inside’. Also featured are silkscreen prints by children’s author and illustrator Catherine Rayner with, boat and harbour paintings with a Kirkcudbright focus by Clare Finn, charcoal drawings by Jonathan Stockley, mixed media photographic work by Robert Pereira, local landscapes by Stewart Lammie and abstract work by Tricia Barna (pictured). There are also prints by Joshua Miles, who recently relocated from South Africa, and six new ceramic collections.
The Gallery supports the Own Art finance scheme.
