Exhibition will be picture perfect in Orkney

The work of Orcadian artist Mirran Hall is to be staged at a new exhibition on the island.
This Saturday, October 7, sees the opening of the show of paintings, drawings and monoprints at the Orkney Museum, by Stromness artist Mirran Hall.
Mirran has had many exhibitions throughout Orkney and further afield, but ‘Mirran at the Museum’ is her first exhibition at the Orkney Museum, as visitors are sure to be struck with her bold art.
With an obviously limitless enthusiasm for art, Mirran explained: “I enjoy going to Sanday to make monoprints with Rosey Priestman and drawing with Brendan Colvert.

“I enjoy going on the boat to get there and Rosey’s guidance has been so helpful.
“I also enjoy Sheena Graham George’s painting class, where I do watercolours. She has been a great help to me with my painting, especially in the use of colour.
“I take many ferry journeys to go to islands and to North of Scotland, where I visit museums for inspiration.”
Mirran at the Museum is on at the Orkney Museum until October 28.
The museum is open from Monday–Saturday from 10.30am to 12.30pm, then from 1.30-5pm.
Admission is free, with the exhibition at the museum on Tankerness House, Broad Street, Kirkwall.
