The current exhibition at the Harbour Cottage Gallery in Kirkcudbrigh is showing a collection of wonderful work by Ailsa Black, Kevan McGinty, Stewart Morrison and Peter Wareing.
Ailsa’s paintings are a bold and light hearted interpretation of rural life as glimsped from her studio in Southern Scotland. Images capture the happiness and simplicity of the good things in life and feature favourites like belties, collies and coastal scenes.
Living in the Machars of Wigtownshire, Kevan is a painter of the Scottish landscape, constantly seeking to convey something of the wonder of nature through his observation, intuition and imagination. His palette is often subtle but sometimes bold, and never lacking in interest.
Stewart is a very talented local painter, hailing from Stranraer and now living in Kirkcudbright where his studies of the local townscape, coast and countryside are much admired for the atmosphere they evoke and their lively style
Peter is a ceramicist working from his studio in Whithorn. His work evolved over the years till he arrived at his present style of thrown pots, plates, bowls, and wall plaques decorated using his distinctive tube lined technique in wonderful colour combinations.
The exhibition runs until Saturday 19th and is open daily from 10.00am – 5.00pm. Entry is free and a visit is a must for locals and visitors alike.
