We are honoured to be hosting a solo exhibition of Margaret Evans’ latest works, celebrating landscapes in Scotland, and beyond.
Where the Light Touches encompasses Margaret Evans’ dynamic work, featuring striking landscapes in all their guises, whether at home or away. Honouring her distinctive style, pastel and gouache works are placed alongside plein-air sketches to create a varied study of the artist’ inspiration. Images are sourced from as far as Venice, and as near as Crail; but the way that light is portrayed, it’s qualities and reflections, is one thing that they have in common.
Margaret Evans is a Scottish contemporary artist and leading figure in pastel work. Always inspired and stimulated by the medium, pastels are used in new and distinct ways to create the quality of light, depth and tone which is singular to her work. Known internationally for her painting, writing, and teaching, Margaret studied at Glasgow School of Art and Art Teaching at University of London. Her works are featured in collections worldwide. Painting from her studio in Highland Perthshire, there are plenty of inspirational subjects at hand, including dramatic skies, Loch Earn and the Grampian Mountains.
