Exhibition until 25th Nov 2013; 10:00am – 4:30pm
Following on from a dark period in her life where illness and a failing Relationship were weighing Ruth down, she began using her drawing skills on a very personal basis to express feelings and her hopes and doubts about the future. The original pencil drawings were very personal and were largely hidden from view for five years before Ruth was persuaded to turn them into paintings and began to share her thoughts, first through working with small groups and mediating and later through wider exhibitions. Ruth has now given her paintings to Westhill Charity so that they may have a wider viewing nationally.
The exhibition is a series of 19 paintings, with a booklet to guide you around.
On Tuesday 19th November Ruth Goodheir will be joining us all the ay from the Isle of Skye to led us in a workshop:
Art Retreat Workshop; 2:30 – 4:00pm; A 30 minute reflection on four of Ruth’s paintings followed by 60 minutes working with pastels to create
our own interpretation of The Mother Root. The workshop is free and you dont need any experience, but its helpful for us if you let us know you are coming.
