Exhibition Program

Saturday November 3rd sees the opening of a new exhibition of works by

Melville Brotherston

We are excited to welcome well known local artist Melville Brotherston to Ottersburn once again.

Melville has been a regular exhibitor at Ottersburn in the past and has shown some of his work in last year’s exhibitions at the gallery but this is the first solo show by the Moniaive artist since the opening of Ottersburn under new ownership in 2017.

Art lovers will see familiar scenes of Moniaive and the landscapes from around the artist’s home but also something different as Melville offers for the first time several new works showing his love of the seas and skies of Madeira. He says:

"For this exhibition I have produced bright, colourful paintings inspired by my recent trips to Madeira. The intensity of light, colour of plants and soil, as well as the rugged mountains and coasts are strongly contrasted with the quiet glens around Moniaive and the Solway coast."

Melvilles lives and works in Moniaive where he paints full time and privately tutors drawing and painting.
The exhibition opens on Saturday 3rd November 2018 with a preview evening on Friday 2nd at 6pm

Exhibition runs until 24th November

Please also feel free to get in touch with us should you have any queries or like further information about this or up and coming events and exhibitions.
