A dynamic new collection of works by three of Scotland's highly regarded and outstanding painters.
This exhibition previews on Sunday 16 June, 2-5pm
DAVID SMITH RSW
Born in 1957, David Smith is a Scottish contemporary landscape artist. The palette and inspiration for his work is taken from the seaboard and landscape of Scotland. Although predominantly a self-taught artist, he has studied at various colleges including the Glasgow Print Studio, Glasgow College of Building and Printing, Glasgow School of Art and Latrobe University, Melbourne, Australia.
A past member and President of The Glasgow Group of Artists, he was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in 2011.
Based in the Scottish Borders, Patricia’s work has featured in several prestigious public exhibitions in Scotland and in many solo exhibitions in both Scotland and England. Her work is widely collected.
Drawing inspiration from the land and seascapes of the Scottish Borders, Northumberland, Scotland’s west coast and the Hebridean isles, she paints in a free and fluid style using watercolour, acrylic, and mixed media, always searching for an emotional response which leads the mind beyond what the eye perceives.
Rosanne Barr was born in 1981 in the village of Gartocharn on the southern shores of Loch Lomond. Graduating in 2003 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee with First Class Honours, she exhibited in London at the British Design Centre and at The Mall Galleries where she was awarded a Licentiate of Distinction by the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
Rosanne explores and captures the mood, emotion, colours of a place, a landscape filtered through the sands of lapsed time. These are imagined places - her Lands of Escape - but based on direct experience of the Atlantic seaboard of North West Scotland and Orkney Orkney; real landscapes of hill-top, ocean and immense, free sky.
