Graeme Taylor, Forces of Nature,
Exhibition in Mareel
An exhibition of work by emerging artist
Graeme Taylor has gone on show at Mareel highlighting the light and
landscape of Shetland.
Graeme Taylor moved to Shetland with his
family after gaining a degree in Fine Art in Wales. Since then he
has been working to develop artworks reflecting the forces of
nature that have shaped Shetland's unique backdrop.
Shetland Arts has been working with Graeme
in conjunction with Moving On Employment Project, to help him
develop a body of work for exhibition. This is his first solo
exhibition and will be displayed upstairs in Mareel outside Cinemas
1 & 2 until the end of August 2013.
Shetland Arts' Marketing Officer, Lisa
Ward, said: "It's been a privilege for Shetland Arts' to work with
Graeme and the Moving On Employment Project to display his work in
this Forces of Nature
exhibition at Mareel."
