This Saturday (October 7) sees the opening of a new exhibition of paintings, drawings and monoprints at the Orkney Museum, Tankerness House, Kirkwall, by Stromness artist Mirran Hall.

Mirran has had many exhibitions throughout Orkney and further afield, but ‘Mirran at the Museum’ is her first exhibition at the Orkney Museum.

Her limitless enthusiasm for art is obvious, as she explains:

“I enjoy going to Sanday to make monoprints with Rosey Priestman and drawing with Brendan Colvert. I enjoy going on the boat to get there and Rosey’s guidance has been so helpful. I also enjoy Sheena Graham George’s painting class, where I do watercolours. She has been a great help to me with my painting, especially in the use of colour. I take many ferry journeys to go to islands and to North of Scotland, where I visit museums for inspiration.”

‘Mirran at the Museum’ is on at the Orkney Museum from 7th – 28th October. The museum is open, Monday – Saturday from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm, 1.30 pm – 5.00 pm. Admission is Free.
