Autumn Gold exhibition at Whitehouse
The Whitehouse Gallery in Kirkcudbright has welcomed in the autumn with a mixed exhibition of work from a range of fine artists and makers.
The preview opening for Autumn Gold was on Saturday.
New artists to the gallery include Jackie Gardner and Lindsay J Grime.
Jackie is a contemporary landscape and seascape artist.
She studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and has since enjoyed a 30-year career as a full time artist.
Jackie has hosted several one-woman shows throughout her career and she regularly exhibits in group shows throughout the UK and overseas.
She works mostly in oils and experimental media for surface textures and is greatly inspired by the sea and open spaces. Edinburgh College of Art graduate Lindsay has worked as an illustrator since graduating, but has continued creating her artwork which has been more recently focused towards painting.
Her highly colorful figurative paintings depict curious, dreamlike scenes, often featuring wild and joyful female figures.
The characters in her painted world are untethered, expressing a certain fantastical connection to the natural world, a longing for freedom and delight.
The gallery will also be introducing some of Ruby Marr’s interesting and unique mixed media work which are inspired by the ocean in the upstairs space this exhibition. The Whitehouse is delighted to welcome back new work from some fantastic fine artists who it has represented over the years.
The exhibition, which runs until November 3, focuses predominantly on landscape and still life work in an interesting range of medium and style, with work by Alison Dickson, Jen Collee, James Somerville, Kelly Stewart, Kittie Jones, Linda Park, Michael Batey, Moy Mackay, Patricia Sadler, Peter Foyle, Sheila Fowler and Stewart Morrison.
To accompany the work on the walls, there are new collections of ceramics, sculpture and jewellery in this exhibition.
Local potters Fitch and McAndrew will be providing a new collection of their wood fired slipware.
There will be jewelry by Heather Andrews and Melissa James, ceramics by Archie McCall, ceramic sculpture by Karen James, wood sculpture by Michael Lythgoe and bronze sculpture from Fernando Mario Peoressa.
