On Saturday (1st April) we're reverting to our summer hours. We'll be open 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday. Maybe it's not such a surprise given the lovely weather we've been having recently.
We have a new exhibition starting on 1st April. Our 'featured artist' this month, is Alison Dunlop a Canadian artist who has made Scotland her home, living and working in Opinan, near Gairloch. We have a great show of abstract watercolours from Alison – here's a bit about her.
Alison works in both watercolours and oils, and describes these two strands of her work as follows. “Watercolours, of the moment: an essence of fluid, melting movement, at times ethereal, at times riotous…. and then the studied calm of the oils: motion slowed to a controlled, frozen, full stop, where it dances forever in one form. “
She is an elected member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and is a past Vice-President of the Society. She is also a past President of Visual Arts Scotland. Duncan MacMillan, Art Critic of The Scotsman said about her work "This is essential watercolour."
Please come along and see Alison's watercolours and tell us what you think. She has given us some cards and booklets too, so there's something for everyone to enjoy.
