Joyce Gunn Cairns MBE

I'm preparing for the upcoming Winter exhibition.  After three solo exhibitions, this will be something very different, with work from over twenty-five invited artists.  An extravaganza, a cornucopia, an abundance of art - a big mixed exhibition by the finest artists Scotland has to offer!

And here's one of them - beautiful Joyce Gunn Cairns MBE.  From Edinburgh, Joyce is an exquisite artist whose work I feel very lucky to be able to show.  She is incredibly well known on the east coast, but I've managed to smuggle some work of hers over to the west!

I am a huge fan of her work.  The paintings are steeped in beauty, pain and tenderness, each one full of meaning.

Subtle in tone, these gentle works manage to exude strength, capturing your eye and your imagination.

Joyce herself is viewed as one of the doyennes of the Edinburgh art scene.  Other artists look up to her, often seeking out her counsel.  She's a very special lady and although she likes to keep it under her hat, she does much good work for the underprivileged.  She doesn't have an MBE for nothing (sorry Joyce!).

She is true artist, filled with zest and dynamism, and we are so lucky to be showing some of her beautiful new works.

The Winter exhibition opens 27 November.

Thanks for reading!
