From St Ives to Aberfeldy Four Cornish Printmakers

All four printmakers (Becky Haughton, Rachael Kantaris, Liz Luckwell and Lynn Pascoe) live in Cornwall and their work seeks to extend the traditions of the St Ives School. Though separated from Scotland by distance these Cornish images feel very close to home. Lovers of the Scottish landscape will find resonance in their expression of light and colour. In this vibrant display of printmaking landscapes transform into abstract forms and colour itself takes on meaning. Watermill Gallery Mill Street, Aberfeldy PH15 2BG 01887 822896 Open Mon - Sat 10am – 5.30pm & Sun 11am – 5.30pm
