The Geoffrey Page centre in The Wing is being put to an exciting new use as home to an exhibition of dramatic paintings by renowned artist Nicola Rose.
The airy, modern venue, which serves as the Trust's education centre but is also hired out for business meetings and events, makes a superb venue for the exhibition, which will be on display until 20 April.
A number of invited guests enjoyed a preview evening at which broadcaster and friend of the Trust Jan Leeming read poetry by Tim Borrill, whose work helped to inspire the stunning canvasses painted by Nicola and featuring the scenery and birdlife of the remote Shetland Isles.
The exclusive exhibition, entitled The Edge, features new paintings that combine bird imagery with seascapes and reflect the artist’s fascination with the power of the elements. The works are dramatic and compelling, creating a strong sense of place.
The Trust will receive a commission from any works that are sold. The exhibition is free to enter and can be visited whenever The Wing is open, from 10am to 5pm, seven days a week.
