Art, Print & Photography
Orkney is a place of wide vistas: clear air and wonderful colours make it a perfect setting for artists and photographers. There is plenty of scope for personal preferences and some artists concentrate on the natural landscape in all its varied seasons, whilst others look to the wildlife, particularly the birds, and yet others look to the historic and prehistoric past for inspiration.
Our artists work in different media: paint, encaustic art, embroidery, felt and photography. One artist works mainly in found and natural objects taking an artistic approach to beach-combing! Art and photographs are available as prints or printed onto a large variety of products from canvases to mugs, coasters, place-mats, T-shirts, key-rings or pens. Some members also paint or print their own designs onto fabrics and other materials.
