Edinburgh (where it originated) for this splendid exhibition, to be held at the Dundas
Street Gallery, 6a Dundas Street Edinburgh EH3 6HZ. Dates are 17th to 28th August.
There is something immediately appealing about Walker
captures the intensity of the Scottish landscape? Or maybe because we see a
continuity with the tradition of Scottish painting? Walker
the romantic paintings of McCulloch and McTaggart which capture the drama and
often violence of the Scottish landscape.
Or perhaps it is Walker
handling of paint? Certainly her landscapes have a sincerity and historical
background while the brushwork is loose and immediate.
Walker captures the quickly changing moods of Scotland, in particular the West
Coast. The viewer feels Walker
of rain in the air conveyed with a real sense of immediacy.
The dates are 17th to 28th August and the opening hours are weekdays 10.30 to 6
and Saturdays 10 to 4. For further information or images please contact Deborah on
