THE Soul of Place is the theme for this month’s featured exhibition at The Old Schoolhouse Gallery at Cleveland. Feature artists are painter Dana Petersen, wildlife artist Michelle Caitins, and jewellery designer Robbie McInnes.
The trio will host a gala opening of their combined exhibition, Connections – The Soul of Place, at 7pm at the gallery on Friday, August 3.
Opening festivities will include live music by vocalist Sarah Calderwell and guitarist Paul Brandon, from Celtic band Sunas, who will play a contemporary Celtic repertoire from their ABC album, As Night Falls.
Gallery patron Debra Henry will open the exhibition on the evening. Dana’s art communicates her enjoyment of life and travel experiences through a reflection of colour and form. Her paintings for the August exhibition were inspired by a visit to the Kimberley in Western Australia.
Since taking up painting in 2006, award-winning painter Michelle has been involved in international exhibitions and collections and has had one of her paintings feature on the cover of a UK nature art magazine, while 10 of her artworks were published in a US wildlife art book.
Robbie has been exhibiting in the local area for five years, and the Old Schoolhouse Gallery has previously featured her Textures in Nature Mixed Media drawing series and jewellery design label Silver & Earth. n The exhibition will run until Sunday, August 26.
The gallery is in Shore Street North, Cleveland and is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Entry is free. More information 3821 2419.
