'Svalbard' Exhibition by Ellis O'Connor

Sun 22 April - Sat 16 June

Ellis O'Connor is a Contemporary Landscape Artist living on the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist in Scotland.  Practising in a variety of mediums including drawing and painting, Ellis aims for her work to give people a chance to connect with the landscape and respect the nature that is so wild around us, to then cultivate a deeper understanding and inspire others to make a difference.  These works are a collection of mixed medium oil paintings made in response to an expedition Ellis ventured on around the Achipelago of Svalbard in the High Arctic. She spent three weeks sailing around these uncharted waters and this visual inspiration has inspired this body of work, each one being original and inspired from the wild untamed north.

Daily, 10am - 5pm. Free entry.
