Caledoniart Hosts an Exhibition of Some of Scotland's Finest Artists

In the Year of Scotland's Islands London-based Caledoniart, Scottish Contemporary Art, presents a new exhibition bringing the unique beauty of the Scottish isles and the 2011-12 celebrations to the city.


'Caledoniart's Scotland's Islands' exhibition, at Mayfair's Air Gallery from 26th September - 1st October features the work of ten of Scotland's finest contemporary artists.


The artists include painters John Lowrie Morrison - better known by the nom de plume 'Jolomo', Mike Healey, Robert Kelsey, Fiona Macrae, Alan Anderson, Erni Upton, Vega, and Jolomo Landscape Paintings Awards finalists Willie Fulton and Jamie Hagemen alongside Skye-based animal sculptor Laurence Broderick.


Laurence Broderick is best known as the sculptor of the Bull in Birmingham's famous Bull Ring. Jolomo, OBE, is Britain's best selling landscape artist and has been hailed as the 'new Vettriano'.


The Year of Scotland's Islands runs until the end of March 2012 with over 300 events taking place across 42 isles as well as a number of mainland events.


Amanda Brock, Caledoniart's founder said: "We are very privileged to have such an array of renowned artists supporting one exhibition. This should be a real treat for all Londoners - not just London's 400,000 Scots. The exhibition is not only a rare chance to see Scottish artists of this quality exhibiting together, but also a chance to experience part of the Year of Scotland's Islands in London. I'm sure it will whet city-dwellers' appetite for a visit to the isles to experience their beauty first-hand."


The Air Gallery, 32 Dover Street, Mayfair, London W1S 4NE opens daily from 10am-8pm except 1st October, opening 10am-4pm. The nearest tube station is Green Park. Entry to the exhibition is free ~ http://caledoniart.com/.
