These two artists have distinctly contrasting and recognisable styles and colour palettes. Morag paints detailed and imaginative groups of objects on intricate backgrounds in rich reds, blues and greens which can evoke a sense of warm, exotic places. Jennifer’s townscapes are about the contrast between sunlight and shade, painting her Mediterranean subjects in a range of cream, brown, green and purple with vividly coloured points of interest. Together these artists’ paintings are sure to bring a warm feeling to visitors on cold autumn days.
Alongside the paintings is a feature on Galloway sculptor Urpu Sellar. Born in Finland in the 1950s, Urpu moved to Scotland in 1980. She originally trained in textile design and weaving. She started working in clay by chance and now produces mixed media sculptures in ceramic with wood, metal, glass and acrylic as she feels appropriate. Her works and their titles are often tongue-in-cheek, playing with language. Urpu is a regular exhibitor in a selection of Scottish galleries.
