Kittie Jones and Jane Smith present a joint exhibition that reflects their shared interests and sources of inspiration, albeit from their respective view points on the East and West coasts of Scotland. Jane and Kittie got to know each other in April 2018 during a week long drawing trip to the Isle of May. As artists working out in the field, they understand the power of art to bring the stories of the natural world to life. Both see this as a key aspect of their practice. During their island adventure they discovered that they had much in common. Born in England, both have made Scotland their home and draw their inspiration from the Scottish landscape. Jane in Argyll with the southern Hebrides a boat ride away, Kittie in Edinburgh with the Forth coast and islands on her doorstep. They also share a background in printmaking and are both professional members of the Society of Wildlife Artists, each receiving a prize at recent SWLA annual exhibitions. This exhibition is part of this exchange between two artists who are also both members of the SOC. The gallery is open daily from 10am - 4pm.
