We love meeting people & that is why Beach | Orkney loves hosting special happenings, classes & traveling exhibitions. But our fun was constrained this year, as restrictions on travel & tourism forced us to keep our doors closed.
(Update: from July 2021 we are now open!)
But where there's a will there's a way & our solution to this has resulted in the latest show for Summer 2021 - Wild Things. This is a virtual online display featuring small sized artworks on the theme of wildlife.
We've been overwhelmed by the number of artists from all over the UK, & some from overseas too, who responded to our call-out for small sized works. So we're pleased to show you a diverse selection of lovely pieces - 148 at the last count! - from watercolours to embroidery, oil painting to collage.
Please browse the selection & let us know if you've picked a favourite!
You can scroll down through the pictures & click through to read more about each one, or you can click on the Virtual Tour which will take you through each gallery room in turn.
Just remember that the display shown here is a virtual gallery - in real life we are just a small 'bijou' space!
You may notice that there is a range of skills in the mix - we welcome all levels of creative ability!
Each artwork is the size of a postcard (6"x4") & is priced at £25, so they make lovely little gifts for someone you love or for a little treat for yourself. They are sold unmounted & unframed so you can choose your own frames to suit your own taste. But if you would prefer your works to be framed, you can choose this option too.
