Winter Exhibition


This exhibition features ‘Shetland' a new series of twelve etchings by Norman Ackroyd, Royal Academician, whose prints are collected by The Tate, Ashmolean and many other major institutions worldwide. Plus etchings by fellow Royal Academician and world renowned architect, Ian Ritchie, paintings by Ackroyd's son, Simeon Ackroyd, and photographs by Jocelyne van den Bossche. Ackroyd is world famous for his atmospheric monochrome etchings of the British landscape. His new prints, inspired by the breathtaking coast and islands which make up the Shetland Archipelago, resonate with the ominous power of the ocean and the weather. Fellow Royal Academician, Ian Ritchie, the world renowned architect and creator of Dublin's Spire in O'Connell Street, will show a series of exquisite and delicate etchings. Ritchie, who is also an artist and poet, explores the interplay between words and images in his artworks. Also on show are Christmas Lights, a series of quirky ‘art' lamps constructed by artist George Trapp from recycled materials.
