Peter Davis lives and paints in Shetland, where the two extremes of stillness and flow, and the myriad activity between the two, are the defining elements of the Northern landscape. Peter shared: ‘Recently I discovered a book of weather words of Orkney and Shetland and became intrigued by the almost visually descriptive language found in the Northern Isles. Where, it is said, the Inuit have a hundred words for snow, the Shetlanders have an equal number for wind and rain! These words have begun to inform my paintings.

Angie Packer recently graduated from DeMontfort University as a mature student, and stayed there as an Artist in Residence in 2017-18. Her ‘Fluidity’ series have been originally inspired by Venice. Angie works in both glass and metal, as the latter is used to form an impression in the glass during the making process. Originally her work started as functional carafes and tumblers, but now is progressing into more sculptural works and fabulously resonate with translucent layers of Peter’s watercolours and land-forms emerging from the water.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Between Earth and Sky: Watercolours and Glass are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
