The Clubs Featured Artist in the Kingsgate Gallery for the month of January 2018 is Terry Gratton. Here is a selection of paintings from Terry’s display on “The Wall”. See more on our Facebook Page.
Landscape Artist Philip Raskin will give an acrylic painting demonstration at the club on Tuesday 13th February from 7pm until 9pm. Working with acrylic paint he has established a distinctive style in which he exploits the medium’s robust impasto qualities along with sensitive and delicate use of its watercolour like properties. The effect is to capture magically the mood and light of Scotland.
Philip is rapidly aquiring a growing and loyal following of collectors throughout the UK and you can view many examples his of work on various websites and online galleries. Members who would like to attend this demonstration should put their name on the list displayed in the club. There will be a £3 (non-refundable) fee for the event payable in advance to Annette Burgess by 7th February.
