Kirkcudbright’s Whitehouse Gallery is launching its final exhibition of 2020 with a mixed exhibition of paintings, beautiful objects and unique gift ideas for Christmas.
It includes artists new to the gallery: Ellis O’Connor‘s dramatic landscapes are a response to the turbulent environment of her native North Uist. British-Hungarian Laura Medcalf is exhibiting prints created using the natural chemistry of soluble UV sensitive crystals, reacting to sunlight and developed in the sea. Edinburgh College of Art graduate Orla Stevens creates paintings and textiles with expressive mark-making, responding to multi-sensory experience of place and reflecting her training in printed textiles and embroidery. Other artists new to the gallery are Julie Brunn and Liz Myhill RSW. Brunn is one of the leading wildlife and animal artists in the UK, while Myhill’s work is based on observation, working directly from life during her walks in Scotland.
Other artists featured include Erraid Gaskell, James McFarlane, Sara Bor, Susan Reid, Tricia Barna, Morag Lloyds, Jackie Henderson, Lucy Wilson, and Fiona Millar. There will be new mosaics by Amanda Anderson and Morag Archer, paper art by Anna Cook, jewellery by Eileen Macalister, glass sculpture by Elizabeth Welch, baskets by Geoff Forrest, ceramic sculpture by Karen James and Pauline Montgomery, ceramic pictures by Elaine Brett, and ceramics by Rowena Gilbert, textiles by Moira Third and Jo Gallant, and, the gallery promises, much more.
The Gallery supports the Own Art finance scheme.
