Hazy Horizons


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.
