Kate Downie’s Between Seasons at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries features eight major tree paintings in oil on linen, each one closely observed and mirrored exactly six months apart in time. Created in Downie’s rural Fife studio during the pandemic, they are personal acts of love and nurture. Like an hourglass, the paintings have two bases, so can be turned through 180 degrees, representing the cycle of seasons at a time when we have been forced to remain in one place. Most works are available to buy, including a new print edition created for the Gracefield exhibition. 

Kate has also curated a complementary show of work by over thirty artists selected from the Gracefield permanent collection and including Andy Goldsworthy, Silvana McLean, William Gillies and Archie Sutter Watt.
