In The Windows At Northlight

Due to the restrictions of Covid19 The Northlight Gallery is unable to re-open but instead is displaying the work of featured artists in its windows in Stromness.

The first exhibition of the season of showing artists’ work in the windows of Northlight is up ready to see.

Jeanne Bouza Rose is showing 31 brand new plain air landscape paintings. Some are of the archaeological dig at the Ness of Brodgar, where she was supposed to be Artist in Residence this summer.

With the permission of Nick Card she has been painting there and if those paintings are sold, she is donating the proceeds to the archaeological dig

However, the image below is of The Blue House on the Hill on The Old Finstown Road.

  1. Great to see some new art making happening again in Orkney. I believe there are some changing exhibitions at Northlight? It would be very much appreciated for non residents if we could enjoy these through the Orkney News!

      • Perhaps Cary Welling could send you some images? And maybe the Orkney Museums would like to contribute images, if they’re open again? I know Creative Orkney would be happy to also. But thanks for trying anyway.

    • Hello Dotty
      Specifically, some of Jeanne’s new art-work can be seen on her Facebook page……

      You don’t have to be on Facebook to look at it – I’m not – and I do!

      TON will do it’s best to keep folk up-to-date with what’s on in the Northlight windows – would any Stromness/Orkney resident, feel like doing a review, and sending it to TON? Preferably with pics!

      • Thanks Bernie- I am a friend of Jeannie’s so I do keep up with her work- was just making a general request to see more of Orkney’s creative folk!
