Clare Brownlow private view at Dundas Street Gallery
When it comes to Scotland in August, one thinks grouse and the Festival. An additional attraction this season was the Private View at Dundas Street Gallery for sporting artist Clare Brownlow, opening her first solo show.
The unique sporting collection drew an appreciative and jolly crowd, including Field contributors and some curious festival-goers who couldn’t resist the artwork’s appeal. A striking neon flamingo, resplendent in the window, welcomed guests and introduced Brownlow’s latest collection. established country paintings shared gallery space with new ventures into seafood and bug life. All were created using her distinctive technique, which forgoes the paintbrush in favour of a pheasant feather, alongside the brand-new addition of gold leaf, which delighted the art lovers and left a heartening trail of red dots.
Angus Ferguson from Demijohn was on hand to fuel the festivities, serving up marmalade gin cocktails and a chilli and orange variety for the brave hearts. They were just what was required to see commissions discussed, meetings booked and hands shaken. As the night drew to a close, conversation turned to the future and hints were made that a new feather would be added to the artist’s toolbox. But that will have to wait until the next show.
Clare Brownlow will be at The November Meeting at Cheltenham (17th-19th). For more information, call Clare on 07768 619777 or email her at: email@example.com
