Two for 2 Exhibition

Sat 2 December 2023, - Thu 4 January 2024,

Jen Salkeld and Pennie Scott are combining their talents in a Festival of the Earth, celebrating our riches and resources through multi-media art.

After recently travelling through ancient cities, valleys and hills of Turkey and Scotland, Jen has produced a photographic examination of the higher energy that passes through botanical matter. Using a photographic filter similar to the visible light created by x-rays, her photographs reveal and explore both the tissue and structural form of trees and herbaceous plants.

Pennie’s inspiration is revealed through the use of mixed media to create 3D objects, collages, watercolour and acrylic painting inspired by patterns of nature. Her scale of visual representation includes wide landscapes through to intimate objects such as feathers, leaves and food.

Opening Saturday, 2 December at 6.30 pm.
