I am delighted to announce  that I will be exhibiting alongside sculptor Vivienne Haig in a show entitled Energy at the wonderful Zembla Gallery in Hawick, Scotland next month. Zembla, owned and run by Brian and Leslie Robertson, is a space for contemporary art housed within Little Lindisfarne – a splendid eco friendly, modernist home designed and built by Brian and Leslie. It’s a real triumph and you can read more about it in Grand Designs magazine here.

I encountered Zembla on Instagram towards the end of 2016 (@zemblagallery – give them a follow) and we have been in casual conversation since. I have been deeply impressed with their open, friendly and inclusive approach and sophisticated aesthetic so I was thrilled and flattered when I received the invitation to exhibit with Vivienne at the end of last year. I have made a series of 17 new paintings specifically for Energy, of which one is illustrated below. A full pdf catalogue will be available in due course.

I do hope you’ll be able to come along. The private view is on Saturday, August 4th, 1-4pm and I will be there of course. All details can be found on the pdf invitation (view it here), however if you’re unable to make it I urge you to plan a visit to Hawick at some pointi somon, for if Zembla represents the shape of tomorrow’s contemporary gallery, then the future of exhibiting new art is bright indeed.
