2nd – 26th October

The Scottish Gallery, in Edinburgh’s New Town gallery district, is hosting two exhibitions in October: Kate Downie‘s paintings and drawings convey her fascination with engineering, and the major transformation of the nearby St James site in Edinburgh has provided a fertile subject. She has also applied the title Growing Forms to organic as well as material, and there’s a dynamic energy evident in depicting natural beauty as much as bustling construction work.

The Gallery is also welcoming Hannah Mooney for her first solo exhibition there, Notes from the West. A graduate from the Glasgow School of Art in 2017, Hannah keeps a studio in Glasgow, but her primary subject is the landscape and seascapes of the West Coast of Ireland. Painting largely en plein air, her work is deeply rooted in traditional landscape painting, concentrating on the relationship between light and the land, capturing an essential atmosphere of time and place.
