Alanda Calmus Solo Exhibition

We welcome Alanda Calmus to the gallery for our first solo exhibition.

Alanda is a self taught wildlife and portrait painter. Working from a studio at her home in Fochabers, Morayshire, she has developed her own unique style characterised by realist subjects, painted in oil, which are superimposed upon abstract acrylic backgrounds.

Alanda’s artwork has been displayed in numerous solo and group shows and has been acquired and commissioned by collectors across the UK and in the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe.

Alison Ewan Solo Exhibition

We welcome Alison Ewan to the gallery for the final solo exhibition of the year.

Alison is an artist widely known throughout the north east of Scotland, born in Aberdeen but now lives in Aboyne.    Alison paints mostly exclusively in watercolours, mostly landscapes and is particularly fond of old buildings and structures which blend with the landscape, reflecting the passage of time or which strike a familiar chord and perhaps awaken forgotten memories.

The exhibition will finish soon, don’t miss it!
