Barbara Robertson (Babs) sadly died this month, just days short of her 73rd birthday. Barbara was a superb printmaker, sensitive, observant, full of humour and wonderfully skilled. She was also warm, generous and great company.
Summertime and the livin’ is easy...so goes the Gershwin song. Well summer seems to have well and truly arrived this year with temperatures even in north east Scotland soaring into the high twenties. We always look forward to our Summer Exhibition as we take the opportunity to introduce new artists to the gallery.
We asked Ian Mastin if he might have a recent photograph of himself in his studio. It’s always interesting to visit an artist in their studio, to see how they paint and to view their surroundings and their latest work. But Queensland, Australia, is rather too far for an impromptu visit.
We are delighted that renowned Australian artist, Ian Mastin, returns to Tolquhon on Sunday with his first solo exhibition in the UK since 2013. Ian Mastin paints in the classical still life tradition and he has developed an international reputation.
