Catherine Rayner - Solo ExhibitionThere's a host of new characters to meet...! 1 Jun - 16 Jul 2019 Catherine has had seven children's books published to date. Her first book Augustus and his Smile, won the Booktrust Early Years Award and went on to be short-listed for both the V&A Illustration Awards and The Macmillan Prize for Children's Picture Book Illustration.
Catherine lives and works in Edinburgh with her husband Colin, Shannon the horse and Ena the little grey cat who sits on her desk. Ena frequently steals her pencils and often adds a paw print or two to a painting. Catherine doesn't generally let Shannon get that close to her work but often wishes she could keep her in her studio too!
Jonathan Pocock - Solo ExhibitionAn observation of life in oils 7 Sep - 8 Oct 2019 In his most recent landscapes, brushes have given way to a pallet knife and detail has been moved aside for a more direct response. The application of paint in these works shows a real involvement with the material, resulting in paintings that are both rich and exciting. His work is also held in the House of Lords collection, Westminster and other private collections.
Andrew Hood - Solo ExhibitionBeauty in diversity and landscape 12 Oct - 19 Nov 2019 Since graduating he has worked mainly as a fine artist selling work throughout the United Kingdom and abroad. Andrew makes several trips abroad each year to gather references for his paintings. Recent journeys have taken him to Tuscany, the South of France, Morocco and Croatia. Whilst he enjoys working abroad he often looks for beauty within our own diverse and engaging landscape from the Scottish Highlands to the rugged Cornish coastline.
Daniel Ablitt Solo ExhibitionAtmosphere in imagination 23 Nov - 23 Dec 2019 Daniel Ablitt uses his surroundings to provide the starting point to his work.
