Long-established Aberdeen gallery Gallery Heinzel‘s latest exhibition at its new space on Great Western Road features 35 oil paintings by John O’Neill, with ceramics by Lois Carson. 

Inspired by his experience of landscape, O’Neill lived in England and Norway before settling in Aberdeen and specialises in painting scenes that residents might see as everyday, and other artists might overlook (such as The Kilt Shop, pictured), but he also has painted Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven Harbour, Tobermory and Edinburgh streetscapes. Working mainly in oil and watercolour, he recently featured in SkyArts Landscape Artist of the Year – in his trademark orange jumpsuit.

Lois’ ceramics meanwhile are inspired by the birds and mammals she observes outside her Aberdeenshire studio. 

The Gallery supports the Own Art finance scheme, which makes purchasing artworks more affordable through payment by instalments.
