A joint exhibition at The Scottish Ornithologists’ Club* in Aberlady, East Lothian, showcases three artists – Babs Pease, John Hatton and Helen Denerley – who take their inspiration from nature and wildlife and use the constraints of their chosen media to express it.

Based in Clackmannanshire, Babs Pease works in linocut printing, deriving most of her artistic inspiration from long rambling observational walks in the local countryside. Also using linocut as a medium, John Hatton has a life-long interest in nature, sustained by his environment in rural Lancashire. Pinpointing the theme of the exhibition, he says that the medium, ‘…forces me to concentrate on essential shapes, rather than detail, creating images that are bold whilst retaining the truth of my chosen subject.’ Helen Denerley’s scrap metal sculptures employ bold shapes derived from recycled objects that remain identifiable, but their character is as much about the spaces left between them.

Entry is free.

*The SOC is a charity promoting the study, protection and enjoyment of wild birds in Scotland.
