I use traditional materials, oil paint, canvas and boards, to make lyrical, semi-abstract paintings. Ways of seeing, influenced by the work of other artists can stimulate new creative outcomes. Work this year is guided by co-operation with the ceramicist Julian Francis.
What to expect: Paintings and pots! Visitors will see the basic materials used in a painter’s studio and follow the process, in the beautifully decorated Gelston Village Hall, together with a joint display of finished work, and be able to visit the adjacent ceramic workshop of Julian Francis.
Directions: From Castle Douglas take the B736 and then the right turn at junction with the B727 to Gelston and look out for the Village Hall and the Spring Fling signs.
Accessibility: Gelston Village Hall is wheel chair friendly and ground floor level. No steps.
Recommendation: Gelston Village Primary School hold a pop-up café at the Village Hall during the Spring Fling weekend, providing tea, coffee and cakes to raise funds.
