Pamela and Erlend Tait
Hidden Harmonies

Until 30 June
Free Admission

Scottish artists Pamela and Erlend Tait collaborate in this joint exhibition, combining their individual practices, techniques and inspirations.

The title of the show - Hidden Harmonies - refers to strange coincidences experienced; to synchronicity and serendipity; to the hidden harmonies in our surroundings; and to time spent alone. There are more secret, hidden harmonies still to be revealed.

James Fotheringhame

Following a path led by a curiosity for nature and found objects James' work is a diverse mixture of formal, lucid and mixed mark making. James works both in the field and in the studio. An informed enthusiasm is what brings together the diverse choice of subjects into a coherent collection of experiences. These experiences are expressed through watercolour, acrylic and oil, satisfying a need to discover, document and enrich.
