We have a wonderful mix of artists taking part in our current Summer Exhibition. We have bright and beautiful, but what we have the most of all is atmosphere.
|Fortress, Dunnotar by Neil MacDonald RGI PAI|
I love works that emote. To be able to evoke different emotions isn't usually down to subject matter. It's something else entirely.
|An Imagined Kiss by Kevin Low|
We can have landscape, figurative, still life that make us feel, winsome, intrigued, hopeful, a little sad.
|Wishbone by Cathy Campbell|
This occurs when the artist gives of themselves and the viewer connects. Possibly in as many ways as different as the individual, but this is what a good piece of art does, it makes us feel different from how we felt just before viewing, it brings something to us.
|Wraith by Margaretann Bennett RSW|
It stops us in our tracks, or makes our minds whirr, or takes us to a different place in our present or in our memories.
|The Mists of Time By Joyce Gunn Cairns VAS SSA|
|Patacake by Alice McMurrough RGI PAI|
It's a very evocative exhibition and I feel lucky to be surrounded by such work.
