Winter Winners!

The Winter Exhibition has got off to a great start.  We have a wonderful mix of renowned Scottish artists taking part. 

I'm delighted to say that there have been many sales already. And what a variety! I love to celebrate the paintings that have sold. So here are a few that couldn't be resisted!
The Fox - Neil MacDonald PAI
This is the first time that the wonderful Neil MacDonald PAI has exhibited with Smithy Gallery.  His gentle tones and skewed perspective create works of an unreal, wondrous nature.  We have three beautiful works from him.

Promenade - Stuart Buchanan

I love this seemingly simple painting by Stuart Buchanan, also new to the gallery. The solitary figure inhabitats this large empty space but for two birds.  The weight of feeling in this painting fills every inch of it up.

The Race - David Schofield

This painting by David Schofield is filled with lightness and joy.  David is also a newcomer to the gallery and we have several beautiful pieces by him.

Tulips by Laura Harrison

Laura Harrison (my mum) is a regular exhibitor at Smithy Gallery.  Her bold, expressive paintings, with their inherent love of paint, always capture the attention of art-lovers and artists alike.

Judy's Revenge - Alice McMurrough

Alice McMurrough is an exquisite painter, and I am so glad she is becoming a bit of a regular at Smithy Gallery.  There really is no-one like her.  The detail and beauty of the paintings fill you up and as you peer closer so much more is revealed, like a secret.

Fresh Snow, Dumgoyne - Gordon Wilson

The inimitable Gordon Wilson is always a success at the gallery.  His energy and joie de vivre comes through every painting.  We love him so much, we are having a solo exhibition with him in March next year!

We have many more works by these artists and others, and the sales are coming every day.  We also have a large selection of jewellery, glass and ceramic work.

The exhibition runs until 23 December.

Thanks for reading!
