The Whitehouse Gallery is hosting an exciting exhibition, which will focus on the wild. The collections of works will attempt to harness the raw power, energy and beauty of each subject matter, with a mix of wild seascapes, wild landscapes and wildlife paintings.
We are excited to introduce new artists to the gallery Stanley Bird, Jen Collee, Carina Ekdahl Prigmore, Diana Hand and Moira McInally.
Stanley Bird is an Edinburgh based artist, who works with a bold palette to create images of the natural world. For this exhibition, we are getting a collection of portraits of some Scottish wild animals, which are portrayed against bold, flat and colourful backgrounds.
Jen Collee studied at GSA, and now works from her Edinburgh based studio. Jen likes to work on a large scale when it comes to painting animals, which she launches into with the intention of capturing the rhythm and energy of the subject with the minimum of detail. This exhibition will feature a mix of her wildlife and landscape work.
Swedish born Carina Ekdahl Prigmore now lives at Aviemore, Scotland. Carina’s paintings originate from observations gathered from the natural world. Her landscapes evoke a certain atmosphere and mood, capturing mist and light beautifully in her work.
Diana Hand is an artist who has a love of drawing horses, fascinated by the complex form of the horse and by its beauty, and the by the simultaneous combination of great power and sensitivity. In this exhibition we will be treated to some of Diana’s equestrian art, paying homage to these beautiful yet incredibly powerful beasts.
Moira McInally BA studied at Glasgow School of Art, and continues to develop her artistic skills by drawing and painting daily. Moira is inspired by the ever-changing, and breathtakingly beautiful, Scottish landscape. Painting only in oils, she uses centuries- old techniques in a wonderfully fresh and modern way.
This exhibition will include powerful seascapes by returning artists Rosanne Barr, Duncan Macleod RSW and Amanda Phillips. Semi abstract landscapes and wild Scottish beasts will be the focus for Jane Blair, and a variety of landscapes depicting the untouched Northern wilderness by Georgie Young, Grace Cameron, Peter Goodfellow and Silvana McLean RSW will also be on show.
We can’t wait to get a new re-upholstered, hand embroidered & appliquéd chair from Rustique Interiors for this exhibition, along with new glass by Bobbie Coleman, willow work by Trevor Leat, Ceramics by Helen Kemp and felted creatures by Karen Norton.
We also look forward to introducing to the gallery jewellery by Amber Cooper-Green, and ceramics by Katie Smith.
