Evocative Exhibition from Vega

For the second time The Torrance Gallery in Edinburgh, is having a solo exhibition of work by the highly talented, now Lewis-based artist, who has chosen to be called simply, Vega.

Following a career including working and travelling all over the world after gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Leeds College of Art, Vega’s paintings are uniquely evocative of the island-life which is a lovely contrast to the cities in which so many of us spend much of our (still rewarding and exciting!) lives. I first met her and partner and business manager, Trevor St Clair, at Vega’s debut solo exhibition at the Torrance in 2014 and was delighted both to renew the acquaintance and view Vega’s most recent works.

Sailing BoatsAt the current exhibition I particularly enjoyed ‘The Tranquil Sundown’, which, with clever use of bright colour, portrays ships on what seem to be amazingly still waters. Another personal favourite is ‘The Bridge, Study in Green’ with three delightful-looking sheep crossing a stone bridge over water with a background of green hills.

If you enjoy paintings which are both tranquil and exciting do go along before the end of 18 July!
