Franzeska Ewart | Weekend Gallery

Weekend Gallery, Craighouse Square, Kilbirnie
Running until September 30
Open Monday to Saturday from 2pm – 5pm

The Weekend Gallery in Kilbirnie is showing oil paintings and an installation by gallery co-owner and artist Franzeska Ewart.

She explains: “I am a writer as well as an artist, and my paintings have a strong narrative content. They depict birds giving women gifts from the bird world, which are transformed into objects of desire or comfort for the women. Each painting has an illustrated haiku, and these haikus are in the book which forms the central part of the installation ‘A Feather For your Cap’. Visitors are invited to add their own illustrated poems or prose inspired by the paintings. In return, they get a feather!”

The exhibition is in memory of a friend who died recently of cancer. A proportion of sales will go to Ardgowan Hospice in Greenock.
