Gallery to show­case lo­cal artist’s cre­ativ­ity

- JOHNATHON MEN­ZIES

A Strath-based artist’s work is to go on dis­play at a lo­cal gallery later this week.

An ex­hi­bi­tion by Com­rie res­i­dent Jonathan Sainsbury will be on show at the Shaky Vil­lage’s Goldfinch Gallery from Fe­bru­ary 8 un­til March 4.

Ahead of the open­ing at the Drum­mond Street premises, the Goldfinch Gallery’s Vicky Cot­trell said:“The Goldfinch Gallery is de­lighted to dis­play a num­ber of Jonathan Sainsbury’s larger works in this ex­hi­bi­tion.

“Jonathan and his fam­ily have lived in Com­rie for over 20 years.

“He is a well-known and much loved mem­ber of our com­mu­nity here in Com­rie.”

Jonathan is a former prize-win­ner at the Scot­tish Royal Academy and sig­na­ture mem­ber of the So­ci­ety of An­i­mal Artists.

Ex­plain­ing his in­spi­ra­tion, he said:“The hu­man de­sire for knowl­edge can make us blind to trea­sure all around us.

“Rarely do we sim­ply meditate on the beauty of the nat­u­ral world into which we are born.

“I prod and probe and paint, hop­ing to re­flect some­thing of its com­plex­ity.”
