Artwork for Exhibition at Inverness airport


Today visited Galleries to collect and redistribute artwork in preparation for a show at the Inverness airport. the show is organised by Tore Gallery and will run until New year. It features my representational figurative work, including the firefighter paintings. There is also two new large canvases which will be on display in the main part of the airport, these are 56 x 44" one is 'Wedding Dance' and the other 'Paddling on Skye'. The smaller works will be on show in the lounge by the restaurant area-
also today picked up a copy the the autumn/ winter Art News Scotland Magazine with an article about our trip in it.

we have reports to write up, Lynn has already submitted some, so expect more press cuttings and articles yet.

I've also been mailing a Highland-Russia charity as I'm keen to foster any links possible, they are having an exhibition of Scottish paintings in Siberia early next year, so get involved & send one in !

Other news, still working on final Mosaic panel for the Heritage centre, there is an open day, workparty and BBQ this Saturday 4th, I will be doing a willow rag eco-arts workshop, so come and join in anyone in Lochcarron area.

Hi Rob, I imagine Tore will get something on their website over the coming week, the exhibition is getting hung on Wednesday. This one is just of my work. It was planned a year ago, speak to Tore gallery about showing yours sometime.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
