In addition to a variety of works by POS members this year’s exhibition at the Bield featured the work of LUCY POETT, ARBS, SWA,VAS, a sculptor and painter born and brought up in Scotland who studied briefly at the Heatherly School of Art in London where she was introduced to working in clay by Cubitt Bevis. Returning to Scotland Lucy worked under Scott Sutherland at Duncan Jordanstone College of Art.
Her portraits in bronze include commissions of Sir Alec Guinness, Virginia McKenna OBE and Patrick Leigh Fermor. She has travelled in Africa, India and the Middle East and is fascinated by the faces of the desert people. Her love of animals is shown in many drawings, paintings and sculptures.
Lucy exhibits regularly at the RSA and in London. She has life size Bronzes installed of Sandy Irvine Robertson CBE in Leith, and a Highland Bull and Drover at Dingwall.
The Showcase Exhibition – in the beautifully landscaped setting of The Bield – attracted more than 1000 visitors and included examples of work from many of the Open Studios (POS) participating artists and makers. It showcased the range of work which was on offer in our venues across Perthshire and also included four resident artists.
