GARRY HARPER The First Steps of a Story  
KATHRYN O’KELL Iceland Birds


We are pleased to invite you to the opening of our new exhibition on Sunday 3 September from 2 pm to 5 pm. Please feel free to bring friends and family and enjoy a wonderful exhibition by two superb artists.

Both will be in attendance.

GARRY HARPER is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art. Fascination with the moving image led him to work as a designer for television for 20 years before taking the leap to paint full-time, with much success. 

His paintings show his love of the human figure and also of the Scottish landscape. He aims to evoke memories and capture glimpses of the past that he hopes spark the viewer’s imagination, giving the first steps of a story.

KATHRYN O’KELL carves and paints relief panels in lime wood. Birds are her passion and they are always exquisitely observed. Earlier this year she visited Iceland for the first time and was blown away by the experience. This exhibition is the result.

Arriving in Iceland on a winter’s afternoon gave tantalising glimpses of the landscape. It was already dark at 4 o’clock and snowing heavily. The elemental nature of the land makes a deep impression. We really did experience fire and ice, northern lights, however brief a view, and it had a strangely familiar feeling. 

In many ways, Iceland is what we know but more so.

Images and full details of the exhibition will be added to the website shortly before the exhibition opens. The paintings have not yet arrived but we know it will be a very special show. 

We hope to see you on Sunday,

Joan and Danny Ross
