Launch at the Heriot

Above: Atzi Muramatsu playing at The Heriot Gallery exhibition launch of The Living Mountain: Dreaming a Response

I think this is the first time Atzi Muramatsu and I have collaborated publically since the beginning of lockdown, it felt like old times and the performance, inspired by the atmosphere of the Cairngorms and Nan Shepherd’s The Living Mountain, was really beautiful!

I couldn’t have wished for a more convivial atmosphere, lots of interesting conversations and lovely responses to the paintings – a big thank you to friends old and new who turned up to the launch.

Thanks to Adam Brewster, who remembered to take a few photos capturing some moments, I always get distracted and forget! And of course to Sue Dean and Stephen Edwards of the Limetree Gallery and Lorna, owner of the Heriot Gallery, who thoroughly enjoyed the launch and cello performance too. It was a most enjoyable evening.

The Heriot is a beautiful light-filled space, especially in this April spring light, so do drop in if you find time – the exhibition continues until this Sunday lunchtime (23rd April).
