North Ronaldsay artist at the Orkney Museum
The artist has drawn inspiration from his native island of North Ronaldsay to produce a series of watercolours that celebrates the shoreline where the two worlds of land and sea meets.
The Orkney Museum’s Exhibitions Officer, Tom Muir, is delighted to be staging an Ian Scott exhibition.
He said: “Ian has shown in the museum on several occasions in the past and his work is much loved by both locals and visitors to Orkney. His subtle use of colour and form in his paintings are a real inspiration to all who see them. He is in the unique position of intimately knowing the seas that he paints, as he has spent so much of his life setting creels around the coast of North Ronaldsay. His feel for his native land and the sea that surrounds it is vividly brought to life through his work. It is like having a small piece of North Ronaldsay in Kirkwall.”
Where the Land Meets the Sea: recent watercolours by Ian Scott is on display at the Orkney Museum, Tankerness House, from November 5 to 26. The Orkney Museum is open from Monday – Saturday, 10.30 am – 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm – 5.00 pm, admission is free.
