From the Sublime to the Concrete

06 Jun 2018 - 30 Jun 2018

From the Sublime to the Concrete is an exhibition about the landscape. It is the outcome of a conversation with the visual artist Derrick Guild, which led to the invitation to curate a show for us. Guild sees landscape as poetic and intellectual environment, a paradigm for the creative experience from which the artist draws inspiration across media and subject. Today landscape continues to provide inspiration and current Academicians are inevitably included in an exhibition which celebrates a genre which extends beyond the physical into the metaphysical. Exhibiting artists include: Stephen Bird, James Castle, Doug Cocker, David CookVictoria CroweKate DownieDavid Eustace, Ronald Forbes, Martin GreenlandJohn HewittCalum McClureJock McFadyenDawnne McGeachyHannah MooneyJames MorrisonPaul ReidAlan RobbPaul Scott, Graeme Todd, Michael Visocchi, Arthur Watson.
