SOC to host autumn art exhibition


The Scottish Ornithologists' Club is hosting an autumn art exhibition at its Aberlady headquarters, with the event opening on 1 October. 

This joint exhibition presents paintings and prints by Robert Greenhalf and Matt Underwood, alongside sculptures by Anthony Theakston. Greenhalf and Underwood are both painters and printmakers, using woodcut as their main printmaking technique. While the former is a master of the muted palette and tends to embrace the whole landscape, the latter uses bold colours and designs while zooming-in on his subject. 

'Bewick's Swans' by Robert Greenhalf (Robert Greenhalf).

Anthony Theakston adds his own personal take on wildlife to this exhibition: his sculptures, in bronze or ceramics, are remarkable for their pared-down quality, aiming to capture life with minimal detail.

The exhibition will be hosted at SOC's Waterston House in Aberlady, Lothian, from 1 October until 15 November 2020. Opening hours are Thursdays to Sundays, between 10 am and 4 pm. Please note that a range of measures are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, in line with regulations imposed by the Scottish government. See the SOC's website for details.
