Ink – James Hutcheson and David Faithfull, two of the top illustrators in Scotland, are going to show in Burnside Gallery, in Selkirk from Tuesday 21 September to Saturday 30 October.
This continues the practise of Burnside Gallery in presenting the most interesting Scottish art and design.
James Hutcheson has most recently been Creative Director at Birlinn Ltd and prior to that, Art Director for Canongate Books in Edinburgh.
He says of one of his series, ‘I remember reading the collection of Welsh stories ‘The Mabinogion’. It had been referred to in Alan Garner’s “The Owl Service” in 1969 and for one reason or another it has stayed with me all these years …’ James is showing torn paper sculptures and pen and ink work.
David Faithfull exhibits internationally and has work in collections including Tate Britain, the V&A and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. He uses his experiences in Mull and Iona and is showing screen prints and artists’ books, many featuring his unique pen and ink birds and landscapes.
Burnside gallery can be found in the Market Square in Selkirk and is open Tuesdays to Saturdays.
