Artists' Night At The Mill – This Thursday 6-8pm

7th May 2014

For those of you who’ve been in the shop in the last couple of months, you will have noticed the new artwork adorning our rooms. From Martin’s funky and colourful illustrations, to Lauren’s quirky Rocket sculptures, Orains’ stunning felt piece and Bill’s poetic oil paintings. There is something for everyone, with prices ranging from £20 to £3,500.

We are delighted to announce that all the artists will be with us on Thursday 8th May, between 6 and 8pm, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to meet them and ask all the questions you may have about their work: From their technique to where they take their inspiration from.

We look forward to seeing you on the night for a glass of wine and nibbles on the house! And of course, great music playing in the background…

Here is below, in their own words, a bit more about them.

Orains is a unique arts & design business owned by Pieter van der Werf and Fiona Page.

They design and create products for interiors, both domestic and commercial. They work exclusively with Scottish wool (in particular Scottish Blackface fleece) sourced from farms in Argyll and visit the sheep farmers personally. They manage the primary and secondary processing using ecological materials only.

The farm-to-felt process guarantees control over the supply chain and creates a unique opportunity to make large individual art pieces and commissions together with a lighting range and rugs.

Since graduating from Grays school of Art in Aberdeen in 2009, Martin McBride has been busy experimenting with various new media to advance the aesthetics of his work.

Working mainly within the field of printmaking and illustration, his work is a bold mixture of block colour and pattern with the key focal point being animals from all areas of the world.

He tries to create interesting yet beautiful images that people from all walks of life can enjoy.

Bill McArthur is an Orkney based seascape painter who spent twenty years working as a commercial fisherman.

He has lived for the past 36 years on the remote island of Sanday in the Orkneys and his work reflects his interest and experience of the sea… from the towering rock stacs of St Kilda to the tide race at Cape Wrath on the Scottish mainland’s most North Westerly point.

The implacable power of the sea is what informs all his work, from the gentle ripple of tide on the long sandy beaches of his home to the crashing Atlantic breakers of the Outer Hebrides.

The pieces currently on show at Loud & Clear are from her signature series, Rockets.
