SHORELINE

Shoreline - An Exhibition of Watercolours and Felt By Susan MacColl

"I love to beach comb. Every year the search is different. Every hour the tide changes the patterns in the water. Colours merge and flow. Every stone is different."

Inspired by rockpools, beaches and boulders, fishing boats, sea birds and sand, Ayrshire artist Susan MacColl presents an exhibition of watercolours and felt based on her travels throughout the Western Isles, from Ayrshire to Wester Ross.

By drawing and painting in situ and observing the changing weather on sea and sand, Susan's work highlights her enjoyment of working with two different mediums. From the fluidity of her watercolours to her unique pieces of felt blended with natural and hand dyed fleece, Shoreline very much embraces the Scottish landscape and the natural elements within it. Preview: Thursday 9 October 2014, 7pm – 9pm

To accompany her exhibition, Susan will also be offering felt making workshops for both children and adults. The workshops will take place on the 13th, 14th and 15th of October in the Harbour Arts Centre.
