Tighnabruaich Gallery at Glasgow Art Show
The Argyll-based Tighnabruaich Gallery is bringing the work of artist Heather Nevay back to her home city for the new Glasgow Art Show, after her critically acclaimed solo show in Miami, Florida.
Heather, who has a second home in the village of Tighnabruaich, has developed close links with the gallery in the last couple of years.
The artist’s recent hit exhibition, Flesch and Blood, at Miami’s 101/exhibit gallery featured her signature rose-toned Flemish-style pre-teen figures engaged in sinister childhood games. More than half the work was reserved by the time the exhibition opened last month.
Heather’s highly collectable work was a regular fixture at the Glasgow Art Fair, which took place annually in the city’s George Square until 2010.
Her distinctive paintings, collected by fans worldwide, now routinely sell for four-figure sums.
The Argyll-based gallery is bringing two of Heather’s sought-after original oil paintings to the all-new Glasgow Art Show; one called Alchemists in an Industrial Landscape and the other Belovd.
The Tighnabruaich Gallery is one of 41 galleries selected to exhibit at the brand new Glasgow Art Show, which takes place in the Thistle Hotel, Glasgow from March 23-25.
As well as Heather’s work, the gallery will be bringing the work of sought-after Scots artists such as, Gordon Wilson, Charlie O’Sullivan, Ingeborg Smith, Tommy Fitchet and Kevin Fleming.
They will also be showcasing the unique watercolours of Northumberland-based artist, MJ (Matt) Forster. This will be the first time this self-styled ‘Überpainter’ has been shown in Scotland.
According to Matt, Überpaintings are ‘designed rather than painted’.
“An Überpainting cannot be created within one painting,’ he adds. ‘They have to be developed. This can take weeks to achieve a satisfactory image.”
Penny Graham-Weall of the Tighnabruaich Gallery comments: “We are delighted to be exhibiting at the first ever Glasgow Art Show. It’s vitally important for galleries like ours to be able to bring our artists to a bigger audience and this offers a great opportunity for all concerned.”
