We’ve been really busy at Claremont Gallery since we last wrote, planning our Exhibitions, Workshops and special events to bring you a carefully curated choice of artist and artisan makers working locally and further afield.
Our current exhibition is by the well known and well loved local artist James Furneaux. His work will be familiar to many people living in Aberdeen. For over fifty years he has been recording aspects of our city often from the most unlikely angles with both bold and sensitive draftsmanship and use of colour, transforming the ordinary into the beautiful. Looking over rooftops, up alleyways and into back gardens, James Furneaux’s gift to us is to make us see our city through fresh eyes.
‘Cityscapes’ by James Furneaux continues until 17th of November and really shouldn’t be missed!
This year our Winter Exhibiton will celebrate the wealth of talented Designer Makers living and working in our small corner of the world. We invited a selection of artist we admire and put a ‘Call for Entries’ to the wider artistic community to apply to have their work showcased at the Gallery. Applications are still coming in and going by the very talented people who have contacted us so far, this years Artisan Winter Exhibition is going to be FANTASTIC!
We are delighted that the artist and illustrator Brigid Collins is showing with us as part of our Winter Exhibition and is also running one of her wonderful Poem House Workshops.
