I’ve been invited back to exhibit at the Gullane Art Gallery in East Lothian, Scotland as part of their “Promise of Spring” exhibition.
This will be the third time I’ve exhibited at this lovely art gallery not far from North Berwick. I remember as a child we had several family holidays in North Berwick and have vivid recollections of climbing the Law, playing on the putting greens and exploring rock pools.
I also remember Preston Mill, East Lothian’s last working water mill which is now a National Trust property. One of my painting heroes, Rowland Hilder did a watercolour of it, probably in the 60’s. My father Ken Reed also painted it about forty years ago. I thought it only fitting that I should have a go at capturing this delightful historic building for this new exhibition at the Gullane Art Gallery.
Watercolours of the Bass Rock, the Lamb and Fidra also feature in the show together with a new painting of the Grassmarket in Edinburgh. New paintings of Italy, particularly Tuscany, form part of the exhibition too.
You can see my paintings on the Gullane Art Gallery website.
The exhibition at the Gullane Art Gallery starts from noon on Saturday 7th March and runs until Sunday 29th March.
