This one of several new pieces of work I have done for a special pop up exhibition, curated by Emma Moore (previously of the Left bank Gallery, Kirkcudbright) to be held at the Harbour Cottage Gallery in Kirkcudbright from March 13th until March 25th.
This new picture is also available as a print in 2 sizes from my online shop for £25 (unlimted edition) and £75 (limited edition) with free postage and packing. Greetings cards with this design to follow soon.
Kirkcubright (pictured above) is a beautiful small town on the banks of the river Dee in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. Kirkcudbright is known as an artist’s town due to its long association with the Glasgow art movement, which started when several artists, including the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists, based themselves in the area over a 30-year period from 1880 to 1910 and established the Kirkcudbright Artists' Colony. The town also hosts a fantastic arts and crafts trail each summer in August. Visit www.artandcraftstrail.com to find out more.
The Harbour Cottage Gallery (pictured above) is the oldest gallery in Kirkcudbright, and is managed by the Kirkcudbright Harbour Cottage Gallery Trust, which was founded in 1955. The gallery aims to 'further the Arts in the widest meaning of the term' by providing an exhibition space for local professional and amateur artists and by showing the work of artists from further afield. Each year between Easter and December the Gallery hosts a wide range of exhibitions, including an 'Open' Exhibition in early summer, aimed at encouraging and supporting new and developing artists.
I am a Northumberland based textile artist and I create needle felted paintings with Harris Tweed and wool yarns.
