A‘maze’ing art on dis­play in Lochgilp­head

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Mid Ar­gyll’s Mar­garet Ker has a fas­ci­na­tion for labyrinths and her art­work based on the mes­meris­ing mazes is on show at the Dochas Car­ers' Cen­tre.

She was in­spired to cre­ate the art­works after re­search­ing labyrinths in Canada and at home in Ar­gyll, from rock art to pur­pose-built in­stal­la­tions.

But there is a dif­fer­ence be­tween a maze and a labyrinth. A maze, says Mar­garet, is a puz­zle in­tended to amuse and con­fuse - a labyrinth has one sin­gle, vis­i­ble path lead­ing to the cen­tre and out again.

They are pat­terns with a pur­pose. Walk­ing a labyrinth gives us a chance to take time out from our busy lives and they are fun to walk with friends and fam­ily or qui­etly on your own.

An ex­hi­bi­tion of Mar­garet’s paint­ings on Labyrinths and Rock Art can be viewed at The Dochas Cen­tre, Lochgilp­head un­til early Jan­uary.
