Let it snow - a collection of works celebrating snow

22nd October - 14th November 2021 (Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm). 

 

The mind is entranced and the world is transformed.  Inspired by memory and fairytale, painter Freda Waldapfel, has produced a collection of works celebrating snow.

"I am a Scottish artist working from my studio on the shores of Loch Long in Argyll, Scotland, UK. I am fortunate never to be short of inspiration here:  the loch in front, the forest behind, my garden surrounding the house and studio, and the ever changing light and weather.

In the 'lumina' series of oil paintings I am trying to capture that elusive, exciting quality of luminosity which the garden has just before dusk - Bonnard called it l'heure bleu. It seems then, for a brief magical time, as if all the flowers are lit from within. It takes my breath away.

Colour fascinates me, and my work is a combination of theoretical knowledge of it and intuitive response to it.

Graduate of Glasgow School of Art (BA Printed Textiles) and of the University of Manchester (Master of Landscape Design).Teacher in secondary schools, and tutor at the University of York Centre for Continuing Education where I devised and taught a course called 'Drawing for Non Artists'.

My work as a garden designer led to a return to painting, when I created a wildflower meadow for a client, then felt compelled to paint it!

Over the past ten years I have exhibited in Glasgow, Edinburgh, York and in Argyll, as well as with Cowal Open Studios once a year in late September."
