Twelve Ayrshire Colourists

Maclaurin Art Gallery
Saturday 23 March - Sunday 28 April 2019

The Maclaurin Gallery has invited Twelve Ayrshire Colourists, under the MACART umbrella to a Spring exhibition of their work.

The sheer variety in styles and interpretation is, in itself, dynamic. Not a large exhibition but, like diamonds, a very special one indeed. During this exhibition Carol Dewart will demonstrate her way of working, another event not to be missed. Dates for this will be announced.

The participating artists are: Charles Jamieson PAI PPAI MFA, Jacqueline Orr RSW RGI PAI, James Harrigan, Claire Harrigan RSW, James Orr, Frank Colclough, Carol Dewart PAI, Douglas Lennox, Suzan Malcolm PPAI HPAI, Jim Wylie, Helen M Turner PPAI PAI and Ian Elliott DA.
