In the RED at the Smith !!!
"Winter Warmth" continues at the Smith Art Gallery and Museum, in Stirling.
NOTE: If yours is here please identify/ post in comments (Aine S.)
15 November to 11 January 2009
as stated on the Stirling Smiths website:
"This is the first time artists from the Fife Dunfermline Printmakers Workshop have exhibited their fine art original prints within Stirling.
The works on show are created using a huge range of printmaking techniques. Small delicate etchings of landscapes, medium sized screen prints evoking images of autumn and winter, mixed media prints through to large scale works of landscape and human figures reflect the plethora of styles held by the FDPW members.
There are 19 artists taking part in the exhibition including Clare Yarrington, from Rumbling Bridge in Kinross-shire, an artist who exhibits throughout Scotland. She displays her beautifully controlled use of colour in her large collages in contrast to her subtle hand coloured collographs. She is a geologist and rock climber and these references feature regularly in her work.
Stephen Ratomski from Dunfermline had his prints included in the SSA and RSA annual exhibitions in Edinburgh this year. His artworks are powerful screen prints with rich combinations of vivid colour and shape. They evoke understated references to the changing mood of landscape and nature.
Sheila Carnduff from Aberdour also exhibited at the SSA this year as well as other group shows. Her prints are colourful collographs and etchings inspired by recent visits to the Middle East and Japan.
Lynne Rickard from Thornhill has been a member for a number of years and is exhibiting etchings inspired by nature.
Catherine King from Larbert lectures at Forth Valley College and is exhibiting large collographs of human figures and landscapes.
On Saturday 15 November at 2.30pm artists Catherine King and Alison Leeper will be giving a short talk about printmaking.
Admission is free and opening times are Tuesday to Saturday 10.30am - 5.00pm and Sunday 2.00pm - 5.00pm. Closed Mondays. All works are for sale. "
