Showcase Exhibition at the Bield
In addition to a variety of works by POS members this year’s exhibition at the Bield features Luisa Ramazzotti as our guest artist.
Passionate about promoting art and our local talented Artists, Luisa Ramazzotti was instrumental in setting up the first Perthshire Open Studios in 2008.
Born in Italy, Luisa came to Scotland in 1997. She has been teaching and exhibiting regularly since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee, with a Batchelor of Art degree in 1996 and a Masters in 2008. In the same year she was awarded The Perth and Kinross Visual Artists Award.
Luisa’s colourful and evocative paintings are inspired by her native Italy and the Scottish landscape. Whether under the trees of a secret garden or in the middle of the Venetian lagoon, Luisa’s aspiration is to capture in paint the changeable weather and shifting light. In her images she wishes to transmit the experience of a being in a place, with the smells, feelings and emotions that accompany that experience. She enjoys the sense of urgency and speed of execution required when painting outside but she also loves working in her studio where her paintings are developed from drawings, memory and imagination.
Luisa’s more recent digital paintings are created on her iPad.
The exhibition runs from the 26 AUGUST – 10 SEPTEMBER. Open daily 10.00am-5.00pm The Barn Gallery, The Bield at Blackruthven, Tibbermore, Perth PH1 1PY
