Alison Henry - Art Exhibition

Alison Henry - Art Exhibition

Threave Estate
Tue 27 May - Sun 8 Jun

Alison works from her studio in South West Scotland. She works predominantly in oils and brings together in this exhibition a collection of work painted over a period of years which shows a transition from traditional to a more modern approach to painting the landscape, including her home town of Kirkcudbright and the gently rolling landscape of Galloway.

more details »

She trained under British Sporting Artist, Peter Howell from the early ‘90s at his studio outside Gatehouse of Fleet, and more recently near Dundrennan, when she was encouraged to experiment with different medium. She has recently begun working with acrylics and palette knives; a few are included in the exhibition.

Alison says: “Working with Peter has been inspirational, instructive and a great privilege. He has taught me to observe the light and landscape around me and be able to translate what I see to the canvas – I feel very grateful for the help he has given me over the years!”

Although Alison has had several solo exhibitions, including one at Broughton House, she mainly works to commission, creating attention to the living landscape and sea which make Galloway home to the people who live and work in the Region.

She has recently begun a framing business along with her painting at home in Twynholm.

Entry to the Exhibition is free.


  • 27 May 2014 - 08 June 2014 : 10:00 - 17:00
