Artist – Lindsay Turk.

 

We are pleased to announce the first of a number of exhibitions which will be taking place over the Summer at the Bute Gallery.  Our first is a solo exhibition by Lindsay Turk, a Perthshire graduate of Edinburgh College of Art. Her work shows a pre-occupation with the repetitions, rhythms and cycles within the natural world.

The exhibition will launch with an Open Evening on the 26th May, 7pm – 9pm, when you will have the opportunity to meet Lindsay and to browse a collection of her artworks, as well as fine jewellery and other pieces available at the Gallery.  Wine and refreshments are free.

Even if you are new to art and haven’t considered owning an original artwork before, why not put the 26th in your diary, come along and enjoy the evening. We will also be open Sunday daytime.

 

Artist – Lynne Cameron

 

 

New work by local artist Lynne Cameron is now on show at The Bute Gallery.

Her new piece ‘Beach Curves’ is inspired by the walking on her local beach (Scalpsie Bay) on the Isle of Bute and looking at the curves made by the sea and the tides, by the stream flowing from the fields and across the beach, and in the seaweed left behind.

Acrylic paint on canvas, 100 x 100cm, unframed 2018.

 

 

 

Artist – Sarah Jack

We are happy to introduce the work of artist Sarah Jack. Here at The Bute Gallery.

Sarah’s aim is to portray the reality of working life in the mills and fishing villages of nineteenth century Britain. Her paintings are at once intriguing and compelling, a new and exciting way to bring the past to life.

Her current works come from years of experimenting with texture.
Incorporating recycled materials Sarah creates a foundation by layering overlapping fragments of torn shapes and edges of paper and card, scrim, wire and sacking onto misshapen pieces of board. Pigment is applied, then wiped or sanded away to expose interesting lines and markings and allowing the buildings to be revealed.

Paula Bolton – Jewellery

Paula Bolton Bracelet.

Inspired by the paintings of Monet, including his 1899 masterpiece The Water-Lily Pond, this gold-plated sterling silver bracelet is set with opal and water sapphire (iolite).

Designed by Paula Bolton, this gold-plated bracelet illustrates her passion for art, history and the garden by capturing the elusive effect of light on water with carefully chosen gemstones.

Hand-crafted in Bali by special people who are as spiritual as they are creative, this silver bracelet is made by craftsmen whose skills have been handed down from generation to generation.

Combining 925 silver with 18-carat gold-plating, Paula Bolton’s tribute to Claude Monet and his paintings is a wearable work of art. Not only is it a distinctive reminder of Monet’s water-lily canvases in The National Gallery, it’s also a beautiful art jewellery gift for any lover of Impressionism.

More of Paulas work on sale at the bute gallery.
