Moun­tain art at li­brary ex­hi­bi­tion

The Arran Banner - - News -

Well-known Ar­ran artist and phi­lan­thropist Gor­don David­son from Cor­rie will be the fea­tured artist at the Ar­ran Li­brary in Brod­ick dur­ing De­cem­ber.

Since grad­u­at­ing from Glas­gow School of Art, Gor­don has ex­hib­ited all over the world, from Kath­mandu to Canada. His work hangs in five con­ti­nents in cor­po­rate head­quar­ters, em­bassies, pri­vate homes and royal col­lec­tions.

He de­vel­oped a style of paint­ing he calls his ‘Blue Moun­tain’ tech­nique, which he has used to paint the Alps, the Hi­malayas, the At­las Moun­tains and the An­des, among other ranges. He also pro­duces paint­ings ‘Alla Prima’ on the spot, cap­tur­ing the im­age as he sees it in­stan­ta­neously.

For the past few years Gor­don has travelled to Nepal to be the ‘artist in res­i­dence’ among poor and un­der-priv­i­leged chil­dren, some who have never seen or made art be­fore.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture some of Gor­don’s new works and is on un­til Satur­day De­cem­ber 22.
