Running alongside City Contemporary Art‘s Autumn Show is an exhibition by painter Brendan Collins. Originally from County Clare in Ireland, Brendan moved to Scotland, married and for many years literally carved a career as a glass engraver from his Blairgowrie workshop in Perthshire, and launched a glass engraving company in nearby Alyth. A Brush with Time features landscape and figurative oil paintings which take the viewer back to a 19th century era of romance, elegance and beauty. Gallery director Tom Barron says, ‘Brendan is a master painter, a rarity in today’s art world.’
