I’ve had the pleasure of co-curating the ”Time Spent Amongst Trees’ exhibition with Society of Scottish Artists President Sharon Quigley. The exhibition is on at The Meffan Museum & Gallery and opened on Saturday 6th September, running until the beginning of November. It is a mixed exhibition of contemporary artwork by Professional Members of Society of Scottish Artists including painting, drawing, ceramics, installation, photography, moving image and sculpture. Exhibiting artists are:
Alan Bond, Alison Grant, Andrea Geile, Anne Russell, Audrey Grant, Carol Sinclair, Catherine Sargeant, David Forster, Denise Zygadlo, Duncan Robertson, Elaine Allison, Gayle Nelson, Gillian Murray, Graeme Swanson, Jana Emburey, Janet Melrose, Jenny Smith, Joan Doerr, Kenris MacLeod, Kirsty Lorenz (myself), Linda Kosciewicz, Mark Osborne, Mary Walters, Mike Inglis, Miriam Vickers, Sarah McKenzie Smith, Shona Grant, Su Grierson, Tadeuz Deregowski.
Nature has always been an inspiration to artists, as has man’s relationship to nature. Our pervading sense of ecological crisis makes this ever more critical and complex. It is something ingrained in my own artistic practice, and through ‘Time Spent Amongst Trees’ we wanted to showcase some of the diverse work that SSA Professional Members are making that also responds to this. Trees, our great connectors, were the perfect starting point.
Here are a few exhibition images:
