NEW ART EXHIBITION

Margins and Perceptions

by

Mary Black and Jennifer Ebdy

Saturday 16th June – Thursday 26th July 2018

Elgin Museum

Summer's Farewell, Mary Black

Summer’s Farewell, Mary Black

This exhibition is a joint exhibition from artist Mary Black and sculptor Jennifer Ebdy.

Mary’s source of inspiration for the paintings on display in this exhibition comes from the coastline around Moray and the north-east of Scotland. Mary does not paint one particular place or time but concentrates on the patterns and the character of these coastal fringes which continually change through the seasons and weather, repeating in infinite variations. Since graduating in 1999, she has exhibited in art galleries in Dundee, Angus, Aberdeen, Moray, Inverness, Ross-shire and New Zealand.

Throughout her career, Jennifer Ebdy has been interested in the shape and form of things. For many years she worked as a theatre designer, creating stage sets and costumes for over 40 theatre productions. Later, with a young family, she moved to Applecross and started a second career developing and delivering art-based projects and activities. However, throughout her working life her passion for sculptural form has remained. She has continued to create her own work using clay as her medium of choice, but also experimenting with other materials. With age comes a wealth of experience, and Jennifer use these experiences to inform her work. She also enjoys drawing ideas from interesting, varied and striking objects, people and images, and through those ideas explores colour, texture and form.

Jenny and Mary met in 2005, when they were both art tutors at the same venue. Since then, they have continued to meet up to exchange news and ideas about art which led to this joint exhibition.
