Batten Down the Hatches | May 2020

Ross Ryan presents his solo exhibition Batten Down the Hatches this May. In his own words:

This new collection of paintings is from two years of chasing gales, sailing to offshore lighthouses and discovering the people and their islands that found my messages in bottles. As the world has also temporarily battened down the hatches I hope this exhibition is a reminder of the beautiful seascapes of the West Coast that await for us.
