Exhibition: The Somewhere Else

About Exhibition: The Somewhere Else

Glasgow-based artist Fiona Watson spent her childhood in Canada thanks to wandering Scottish parents. Her romanticised memories are of icebergs floating into St. John’s harbour and skating on the frozen waters of Ontario, surrounded by wild nature. In this series of etching prints, the artist expresses her overwhelming visual memory of Canada, evoking the silence and minimalist aesthetic of its snowy landscapes.

Exhibition runs Sat 5 – Thu 31 Oct.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Exhibition: The Somewhere Else are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
