It is with great pleasure that the gallery is reopening on the 28 April with an exhibition by Edinburgh based artist Mary Walters. Mary Walters has travelled extensively in Europe, in both Northern and Southern directions. Each journey has inspired a visual response in a variety of art media – prints, drawings, paintings, books and small-scale sculptures. Each experience has been a point of departure for the development of a seemingly endless exploration of processes and materials.
Her initial background in geography and geology has provided her a vocabulary through which she attempts an understanding of both the natural and human processes that form the wild landscapes she has come to love – the mountains of Valencia, the basalts of Iceland, the west coast of Scotland, the far north of Finland, the sea ice of Svalbard, the mountains of Norway.
This exhibition displays key encounters with some of these landscapes. Her conversations with the places she has selected demonstrate her ongoing search for that elusive and distilled personal visual language.
Plans are afoot for Mary to return to Upright Gallery in November, with fellow artist Jude Nixon, for an exhibition timed to coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference (CVOP26) talking place in Glasgow.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Points of Departure are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
