Limetree Gallery – Website

*(gallery closes from 23rd to 29th Dec. Contact gallery on website link with any queries)

 

 

The Limetree (owned by Sue Dean and Stephen Edwards) specialises in contemporary Fine Art and Glass and holds regular exhibitions throughout the year. They have two galleries: one in the heart of Bristol city and the other in Long Melford, Suffolk.

They have a particular love of contemporary Scottish artists, and always have a varied selection of their art on show. Ranging from traditional to modern, figurative to abstract, each exhibition is complemented by a selection of individual glass pieces from Britain and Sweden.

Open from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday, or by appointment.

Resipole Gallery – Website

Resipole Studios is an award-winning fine art gallery with on-site artist studios, located on the West Coast of Scotland.

 

The Resipole hosts an exciting annual programme of exhibitions and workshops of Scottish contemporary art that is both emerging and established. The gallery was launched in 2004 by Andrew Sinclair after a two-year renovation of an agricultural byre.

Since its launch, Resipole Studios continues to present work by artists of many disciplines, with Scotland as their key focus. With many award-winning artists on its roster, the gallery is regarded as one of Scotland’s leading contemporary art spaces and, consequently, in 2016 was selected to show work by the late, American abstract-expressionist, Jon Schueler to mark the centenary of his birth.

Recently Resipole Studios and Fine Art Gallery got in touch to ask if I’d like to exhibit with them, so I’ll be sending some smaller works of the west coast (including those to the right here) then more later this year.

I’m delighted to be showing there as the gallery features the work of some of my favourite Scottish artists including Gillian Murray and Joyce Gunn Cairns, also the paintings of the wonderful Jon Schueler (1916-1992).

Ardnamurchan coast (wikipedia website)

It’s not only the quality of artists though, the gallery itself is situated in the wild and beautiful Ardnamurchan peninsula on the west coast. I’ve only travelled there twice as it’s not the most accessible of areas (hence its unspoilt beauty).

 

 

 

As I’ll be staying on the west coast this year for most of July and August I’ll look forward to creating some paintings of the area.

 

 

 

 

Heavy snow (‘the beast from the east’) meant that my plans to visit the Cairngorms didn’t go ahead this Spring, so instead I’ll be painting two large works of Edinburgh in the snow, starting this week.

I’ll also be working on a series for May which explores the landscape and ancient history of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh, it’s right on my doorstep and recently I’ve been exploring the history of its ancient wells – I will post more about that soon!
