Sheila Mullen at the Clock Tower Gallery, Glen House from 12 November 2017 to 28 February 2018.

Surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of the Tweed Valley, the Clock Tower Gallery at Glen House in Peeblesshire is Scotland’s latest contemporary arts venue. The initiative of Tessa Tennant and her husband Bill Staempfli, this imaginative space provides a unique and rather wonderful showcase for some of Scotland’s outstanding creative talent.

Exhibitions will be curated by the artist and former 369 Gallery director Andrew Brown.

Glen House, close to Innerleithen, is one of Scotland’s finest baronial houses within easy reach of Edinburgh and Glasgow. The renovated Clock Tower provides an ideal backdrop for displaying art and the intention in the immediate future is to feature a series of shows for women artists

This season’s exhibition features the work of the painter and Glasgow Art School graduate Sheila Mullen,depicting the magical landscape of the Kennel Valley near her remote farmhouse studio in Dumfriesshire. Although her work is held in the collections of the Bank of Scotland, Leeds City Art Gallery and the Duke of Buccleuch.  Sheila’s marvelously expressive pictures have not to date received the widespread promotion they deserve.

Working in the out-of-doors tradition of Joan Eardley, her lyrical canvases triumph in capturing the complex woodland and hidden places to be found in the rich folklore and poetic traditions that surround her.  Both vibrant and vivid, her  brush strokes penetrate into the very essence of the countryside that she loves.

The Clock Tower Gallery is open by appointment only. Telephone: +44(0) 7913 025022. Glen, near Innerleithen, EH44 6PX.
