Originally planned as an extensive joint exhibition at Drum Castle, Aberdeenshire, 'Out of the Wood' will now be shown online through Edinburgh Palette's online exhibition facility.
Margaret and I, and National Trust Scotland curator Vikki were so disappointed that we couldn't mount the exhibition as hoped due to the Covid-19 pandemic. None of us could ever have imagined the scale of the crisis that was to unfold just as we began to make preparations for hanging. Thankfully we've remained safe and well and I'm delighted that my former studio complex have given us the opportunity to show the work online.
The exhibition will be live to view here from 7th to the 21st August. After the 21st it will remain on the website in their past exhibitions section.Tags:
This year I will be exhibiting at the magnificent Drum Castle, a National Trust for Scotland property just west of Aberdeen. I will be sharing the impressive exhibition space (formerly Jacobean era bedrooms) with printmaker Margaret Pitt, who makes woodcuts.
The estate includes the Old Wood of Drum, an ancient woodland containing many old and interesting oaks. I had the opportuntiy to explore the woodlands on two visits last year and will be going back for a drawing trip next week.
The exhibition opens with a private view on Saturday 4th April and runs all through the Castle's open season until 31st October.
I will also be doing some workshops and an artist's talk - more details to come.Tags:
