Going to be a quiet year for creating work as I had triplet girls in October. I am not planning on giving up for long - just a sabbatical until the girls can at least feed themselves and I am happy to leave them with someone else.
I am still exhibiting however with Kilmorack Gallery near Beauly, Strathearn Gallery in Crieff and The Morvern Gallery on Lewis and will hope to get work to The Aberfeldy Gallery and The Archway Gallery soon.
Happy days, have tickets to go and see Hockney in london in March. Work being delivered to The Aberfeldy Gallery, The New Street Gallery in Dalry and Morven Gallery on Lewis. Work also heading to the Kilmorack Gallery in June.
Exhibitions this year include a solo exhibition in Moffats Yard, a new art space in Moffat, in July. This will be an exhibition about the residency I have been doing in South Lanarkshire - Documenting Change. Then I will be exhibiting again in Oban at Oban Mountain Rescue Post in August. Then a two artist exhibition at The RGI Kelly Gallery in Glasgow in October - this is a collaborative project with Jo Lewis www.jolewisart.co.uk
This Christmas I have work in The Aberfeldy Gallery, The Archway Gallery in Lochgilphead and The Castle Gallery in Inverness.
I now have a facebook page for my work. I think this will be a great way to keep in touch with people about exhibitions and new work facebook.com/lizzieroseartist
Had a fantastic trip to Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. The auction for The Linda Norgrove Foundation went really well, with everything selling and over £13,000 raised for the foundation. The Morven Gallery are now exhibiting my work and have four framed pieces, including Hebridean Lines and Dark Ridge (pictured below) and a collection of unframed work.
On the 9th April I have the painting below in a charity Art Auction for The Linda Norgrove Foundation http://lindanorgrovefoundation.org/ at the Morven Gallery on the Isle of Lewis http:/www.morvengallery.com/
I have work at The Castle Gallery in Inverness. This is a new Gallery to me so very excited about this.
From 14th March I have part of a two person exhibition at The Flat Cat Gallery in Lauder. This is again a new gallery for me.
From 9th April I am exhibiting with The Juno Design Gallery in Dunoon. I exhibited there years ago and am excited about re-establishing links with this gallery.
Please have a look at the new page I have made on my website - Documenting Change - which has a few images and photographs from this ongoing residency. Spectacular images of turbines lying in the snow from November 2010
Morton Metropolis Summer 2010 www.mortonmetropolis.com
After a brilliant week in London working with Jo Lewis (www.jolewisart.com) we had a meeting with Serena Morton at Morton Metropolis, a gallery on Berners Street in central London. Serena is planning to hang our work in her Summer Exhibition which previews on the 28th July 2010. The exhibition then runs till 3rd September. Very very exciting!
This went brilliantly and it was amazing to zoom down to London and go to the preview just off Oxford Street.
Funny article about my Cloud Mountain Exhibition 13th - 16th August 2010
Heather calling Ben
This is an ongoing project with Jo Lewis, who I studied with at Leith School of Art. Since January 2010 we have been exchanging drawings in the post and generally communicating about our work. We are also working on proposals to find a space to exhibit the postal work and other work that develops out if this dialogue.
Crookedstane Residency: Documenting Change
This is a residency to document the changes that are occuring due to the huge windfarm being built in this area. I am really excited about this opportunity as I feel it will push me to work in different ways and expand my horizons within my own work. Initial plans include creating a map of Crookedstane and following routes over a period of time to see how these are affected by the changes. More on this as the residency unfolds...
I have visited four times now and the residency is being extended for another year. Trying currently to get access on to the wind farm site to get a different perspective of the change as it happens.
So many shapes, and beauty in the oddest places, as the landscape changes. Next visit November 2010
The Outer Hebrides
Always a favorite place, but this year I did not manage to get there during the summer. However, Clare McNiven, fellow artist, and I have a trip planned in November to get out to Harris and Lewis to do some drawing and beach scavenging.
