On the Spring tide at Doubtfire Gallery in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge is the Gallery’s first new exhibition of the season, with new oil works by two expressive landscape artists, Sarah Knox and Esther Donaldson

Based in Edinburgh, Sarah is well-known for her paintings of wild places in Scotland: she makes multiple drawings and paintings en plein air to capture the sensation of landscape. Her paintings have been exhibited widely with the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA), Visual Arts Scotland (VAS) and the Royal Scottish Society for Painters in Watercolour (RSW), and she was honoured to represent Scotland in the Fabriano in Acquarello international watercolour exhibition in Italy 2021-2023, and went on to win VACMA awards 2023 and 2024 to develop her work in new directions.

East Lothian-based, Esther has exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA), the SSA, RSW, and the Royal Academy summer exhibition, where her work was selected for the Academicians’ favourites list. In 2018 she was awarded an exhibition by the RSW at the House of an Art Lover in Glasgow and in 2019 was elected a professional member of the SSA. Both artists are inspired to explore the erosion of the coastal landscapes around them, with Esther’s work focusing on the natural forms of the coastline and their relationship to the man-made structures where she lives in Port Seton.

There will be a Meet the Artists event on Saturday 9th March, 2 – 4pm.
