It is sometimes easy to forget that Aine and Antony are both practicing artists. Keeping Highland Park House ticking over is hugely demanding in terms of time and energy but we were both invited to contribute to this new exhibition in Orkney and we each managed to produce some new work for the show.
A Landscape of Tales is an exhibition curated by an archaeologist and illustrator Nela Scholma-Mason, with contributions from a wide range of local artists including ourselves.
This intriguing exhibition runs until February. On one hand it reminds us of the rich culture of folklore and story telling that exists in Orkney. On the other, it is yet another demonstration of the wealth and variety of artists and illustrators, many of them professional, living and working in these islands. Well worth a look.
