Changing exhibition of New work by James Hawkins
“One of the best contemporary landscape painters in Scotland” www.jameshawkinsart.co.uk

Aug 25th - 31st Oct 2017

RHUE by DOMINIQUE GAIS
Dominique Gais A French artist who spent time in Rhue in the spring. This work is in response to the environment surrounding Rhue and the collaboration between her and Landscape painter James Hawkins. The infinite variations of nature are the basis of her creation; she uses these elements by changing their context. Her paintings and her "photo-paintings" describe a dreamed reality, expressive, trying to show the abstraction of nature.

PAST EXHIBITIONS

Jun 17th – Aug 24th 2017

TANERA (AR DUTHAICH) by KEVIN PERCIVAL
He has a unique perspective on photography of place – using a style that straddles both documentary and aesthetic production with analogue and digital techniques. The exhibition uses skills he has developed in traditional landscape, documentary/ photojournalism and portraiture to present a ‘portrait of place’ very much unique to this photographer’s practice and passion for the land.

April 15th – 16th June 2017

MOMENTS IN THE MIST by WILL COPESTAKE
Celebrating those rare and magical moments when the veil lists over the mountains. A collection of photographs from Will Copestake’s winter expeditions across the Scottish mountains. This winter Will has returned to the mountains in an attempt to tackle all 222 Corbett Mountains These images are the moments, minutes and seconds of glory sky between otherwise ‘harsh’ days, the flashes of a view that make the journey worthwhile.

11th March – April 13th 2017

HOW DO I LOOK ? by IAN WILLIAMS
Thought provoking pieces and installations. A different view on Art and how to look at it.

20th Aug _ Oct 31st RhueArt Gallery “Greenland: At the Margins" Jane Rushton and Rhea Banker Greenland: At the Margins catalogue 2016

Jane Rushton and Rhea Banker spent a period of time together in and around Ilulissat Kangia and Eqip Sermia, on Greenland’s west coast, gathering material for a project that would bring their two artforms together in dialogue. Of course, the stunning landscape of west Greenland was a huge inspiration but, more particularly, they were each drawn to the complex relationships between the seemingly permanent geological elements of nature and the more transient elements like ice, water and the lichen flora.
