Last chance for exhibition
An artist whose work is currently on display at a Berwick gallery will be in holding a talk as her exhibition comes to an end.
Berwick Visual Arts has announced that its current exhibiting artist Louise Cattrell will be in conversation with James Lowther, head of visual art for the organisation, on Sunday, January 29, the closing day of the exhibition at the Granary Gallery.
The talk will be an informal opportunity to find out more about Louise’s practice as a painter and printmaker, and the impact that Berwick-upon-Tweed has had on her artistic career.
First Light is a new series of etchings, monoprints and paintings by the artist, which explore the transforming qualities of natural light within landscapes that are connected to the rivers Tweed, Tyne and Thames.
With printmaking integral to her practice, Louise was a Berwick Gymnasium Fellow in 1998 and has since exhibited nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh; Towner Gallery, Eastbourne and PayneShurvell, London.
She has undertaken residencies in Bulgaria, America, Switzerland and the Australian desert, and awards include a John Minton RCA award and a British Council fellowship in Sri Lanka.
James Lowther said: “We have had great feedback from visitors to the exhibition and also from many of the schools and young people that Louise has worked worth over the past few months so I’m delighted to invite Louise back to Berwick for a final time to discuss her work in more detail.”
The event is free, but tickets should be booked in advance via the Maltings Box Office on 01289 330999 or online at www.maltingsberwick.co.uk
