The Winter Exhibition at the Whitehouse Gallery brings together some of the gallery’s favourite fine artists, with a range of landscape, still life and figurative works on display.
James Sutherland is a Scottish artist who paints atmospheric landscapes and coastlines beautifully, inspired greatly by his surroundings. Also sharing this inspiration, Mairi Clark’s evocative paintings capture the ever changing interplay between sea, sky and landscape affect colour and mood in her work. Using mainly oil paint for its rich, deep and subtle qualities, she scratches into the surface creating textural effects. Her use of a wild and vibrant tapestry of colour and light ensures her abstract works have a real ‘sense of place’ by reflecting her love of the Scottish sea and landscape.
Margaret Evans is a Scottish contemporary artist, an internationally respected tutor and author of numerous teaching art books. Her studio is in Highland Perthshire, an area of outstanding beauty and an inspiration for much of her work.
Margaret is internationally known for her pastel work, but enjoys working in a range of mediums, with a penchant for portraiture and landscapes. A graduate of GSA (DA) and the University of London Institute of Education (ATC), Margaret’s paintings are exhibited in various galleries around the country.
