There is nothing like a preview to whet the appetite!
The Gordon Wilson solo exhibition opens at the gallery on Sunday 31 July and the paintings are not due to arrive until next week.
But I have these! Beautiful images of what's to come. And there are so many more to come. . . .
This will be the second solo exhibition that Smithy Gallery has held, and Gordon has put together a collection of new paintings especially. I am particularly excited to be dedicating the gallery to his work.
Gordon Wilson is one of Scotland's rising stars. Having been an artist and framer for around 20 years (he's still a young'un at 43) his painting career has been on an upward trajectory, particularly in the last couple of years.
Many art-lovers won't just buy one of his paintings, but several, as they fall for the energy, passion and thoughtfulness that each work conveys.
