From the Western Isles to the East End, the Espacio Gallery is exhibiting work by four artists from the remote island of North Uist. Belonging to the Outer Hebrides, North Uist is an island bearing the full brunt of the Atlantic.
“Hebridean Spaces” is an exhibit made up of paintings by Marnie Keltie, bookbinding by Corinna Krause, paintings and prints by Fiona Pearson and sculpture by Fergus Granville.
These artists find inspiration in the harsh, rugged beauty of their home. A place dominated by water and wide-open skies, Nort Uist is ‘very varied topographically, with an ancient, rocky, peat- and heather-clad interior, and a fertile green rim around the coasts, fringed with sandy beaches.’
This exhibition was well-received when it came to Dudas St. Gallery in Edinburgh in 2019. The art critic Duncan MacMillan awarded the show four stars in The Scotsman.
