Art Exhibition Launch Event – Frances Innes: Hazy Horizons

Art Exhibition Launch Event

Hazy Horizons

by 

Frances Inness

Friday 27th April 2018 5 pm – 8.30 pm

Join us for an exclusive preview of our first art exhibition of 2018, Hazy Horizon by Frnces Innes. Entry is free, donations welcome. Drinks and nibbles will be on offer, as well as the opportunity to meet the artist.

This exhibition by north east artist Frances Innes is named “Hazy Horizons”, which describes the moody seascapes and misty moorlands on show in the historic Elgin Museum.

Frances Innes’s inspiration comes from the natural environment, the wild places, the sea, shore, cliffs, haar, snow, the changing weather and the drama of it all. The far north west of Scotland, the Highlands and Deeside are all her favourite places – where the land meets the sea, the sky meets the hilltops, the bogs, the mists, the places where midges roam and therefore not many people.

Frances Innes is originally from Aberdeen but now lives in Peterhead. She is mainly self-taught. Having always drawn and painted, she only started painting for local exhibitions and later for galleries some 15 years ago, once she had space for a studio.

Frances is a member of Aberdeen Artists Society and has exhibited with them at Aberdeen Art Gallery and Duff House. You may also have seen her work at Aberdeen airport, Gallery Heinzel, Aberdeen University, Banff Castle, Larks Gallery, Ballater and Arbuthnot Museum, Peterhead and many other galleries and exhibitions throughout the north east.

Art Exhibition – Angus Donaldson: Another Eclectic Collection

NEW ART EXHIBITION

Another Eclectic Collection

by

Angus Donaldson

Saturday 21st September – Saturday 27th October 2018

Elgin Museum

Angus Donadson

This exhibition from Angus Donaldson, his third at Elgin Museum, again comprises a mixture of subjects including seascape, landscape, and wildlife. Oil, pastel and charcoal are the main mediums he uses and, whatever the subject, Angus tries to express movement and give life to the work.

Colour, contrasts and form in Nature fascinate Angus , as they mix and blend, at times vibrant in stark contrast, at times soft and muted, ever changing with the light. Angus has always been interested in art and has enjoyed drawing and painting since his school days. To a great extent, he is self-taught, although during the last twenty years he has regularly attended life drawing classes and benefited from various tutored workshops and painting groups.

In his own words: “Painting with others I believe to be a wonderful way of opening the mind to opportunity and when challenges and problems are shared, so often solutions have a way of presenting themselves”.

Art Exhibition – Mary Black and Jennifer Ebdy: Margins and Perceptions

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.
