As another year comes to an end, The Whitehouse Gallery prepares to host their annual Winter mixed group exhibition. The Preview is on Saturday 5th November, doors open from 11am – 5pm. All are welcome to attend. The exhibition will then be open Mon-Sat, 10am – 4pm until Saturday 7th January 2023.
We are delighted to welcome the return of Claire Beattie, Erraid Gaskell, Kate Bentley SWA, Kelly Stewart, Margaret Evans, Morag Lloyds, Philip Raskin, Ross Fulton, Sheryl Roberts and Susan Reid. We also look forward to welcoming new painters to the gallery, David J Porter, Janet McCrorie, Rosalind Walker, Stephen Smith and Victoria Wylie.
David J Porter’s abstracted landscapes have a calm and quiet quality, inspired from periods spent in Europe, as well as from more local landscapes enjoyed through his love of walking. Victoria Wylie is an abstract landscape painter, with a strong love of colour, whilst Stephen Smith also focuses on landscapes, but his work is primarily concerned with light and its impact. Both artists create atmosphere in their work through colour, mark making, texture and composition.
Colour plays a strong part in Rosalind Walker’s mixed media work. Her paintings are a mixture of abstract, still life and landscape which she builds up in layers of vibrant colour, rubbing back to reveal her own unique style. Janet McCrorie’s figurative paintings also show a strong love of colour as well as a keen interest in depicting movement. Using acrylic & oil paints and pastels, her paintings of Scottish dancers are exhibited far and wide.
New printmaker to the gallery, Georgina Bown, has been a professional practicing artist for 20 years. With a background in steel sculpture, drawing and printmaking, we are delighted to welcome Georgina to the gallery with some of her monoprints. Georgina will be joined by fellow printmakers Joshua Miles and Deb Wing, both previous exhibitors with the gallery and both exhibiting some of their beautiful limited edition reduction linocuts.
An exhibition at the Whitehouse Gallery isn’t complete without some stunning new collections of craft and sculpture, and this exhibition is no exception with an exceptionally large selection coming in this year. We look forward to new mosaics from Amanda Anderson and Morag Archer, Ceramics from Denise Brown, Jack Durling, Rowena Gilbert, Karen James, Karen Lainson, Lesley Anne Greene, Michelle Lowe, Pauline Montgomery, Sarah Lawson, Sarah Saunders, Shirley Vauvelle and Sandra Vick; Glass by Elizabeth Welch, Emma Butler Cole Aiken & Steve Robinson; Driftwood figures by Lynn Muir and paintings on driftwood by Liz Toole; Jewellery by Katy Taylor and Sheena McMaster; Textiles by Jo Gallant; Furniture and turned bowls by Tom Cooper and Rob Elliot, and much more…Back to Blog
