An exhibition celebrating the personal ‘Journey Home’ of Clackmannanshire painter, Janice Headrick, opens at the Greengate Gallery in Culross this week.
This exhibition illustrates Headrick’s return to her roots, from living and working in the wide-open spaces of the Aberdeenshire coastline for much of her adult life, to returning home to the beauty of Fife and the Hillfoots of Clackmannanshire. Harbours, industrial and natural landscapes and the people who live and work here all feature in her mixed media and oil paintings, including scenes of Culross and the surrounding area.
Born in Bridge of Allan, Janice Headrick grew up in Alloa and went on to study Art and Graphic Design at Commercial College in Aberdeen. She worked as a graphic designer in the Granite City for over 30 years, based in the coastline village of Catterline, famous as the inspiration for acclaimed Scottish artist, Joan Eardley. Now working from her studio in Clackmannanshire, she continues to experiment with new techniques and shares her experience with local art groups through workshops and demonstration.
‘Journey Home’ opens at the Greengate Gallery in Culross on Thursday, 8th November until 24th December.
