Currently, I’m preparing for a few exhibitions that begin in the coming months. These include a solo show at the Scottish Natural Heritage centre at Battleby, just outside Perth, which I’m really excited about.
The SNH exhibition gives me the opportunity to create larger paintings again, as the space lends itself to large scale two-dimensional work. More importantly, the ethos of SNH fits well with the subject of my paintings, as well as my personal interests – that of preserving and maintaining natural, ecological systems, wildlife and helping to build a more sustainable future for all native species through their work. I aim to use my paintings to help draw attention to the beauty of our natural resources and surroundings, and therefore aide the understanding of why nature preservation is both important and necessary.
Further exhibitions include a group show with Strathearn Gallery, running from 11th February to 12th March, and I am delighted to be exhibiting there again. I will also be exhibiting with Perthshire Visual Arts Forum, as part of a members’ show, at the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, Fair Maid’s House, Perth (this is pending their selection process). This exhibition forms a part of the Platform event, run by Perthshire Creates, during the last week of March.
Perthshire Open Studios will also be holding their 10th Anniversary Exhibition, at the newly refurbished Civic Hall in the PKC headquarters at 2 High Street. This exhibition also forms part of the Platform event, run by Perthshire Creates.
Into the summer, our Stanley Artists group, previously focused solely on Perthshire Open Studios, will be exhibiting together at Birnam Arts from 4th June. We will, of course, be taking part in Perthshire Open Studios again this year, and more will follow about dates, times and the venue in the coming months.
As more exhibitions arise, I’ll update here 🙂
