Open Studios Ayrshire (OSA) is now entering its 11th year. It aims to promote local artists and makers. We provide a platform to share their work, ideas and passions.

This year, the main OSA weekend will be held in September. But, we have a variety of supporting events planned. One of these will be a group exhibition. This will feature most of the artists all together at the HAC.

Driven to Abstraction: An Exhibition by Gillian Park

Wednesday 11 May – Saturday 25 June

Harbour Arts Centre, Main Galleries

Free Entry

A bit of a departure from Gillian’s usual paintings. This exhibition is filled with the bold colours and expressive mark making we’d expect but with a twist.

The paintings in the 2022 exhibition ‘Driven to Abstraction’ have been fed by her sketchbook work. Tiny fragments of her sketchbook pages have inspired her huge canvases, wooden panels and tiny cameos. The exhibition is bursting with colour in oils, pastels and mixed media.

Gillian’s sketch books accompany the exhibition, so please feel free to have a look through. If you’re feeling inspired, join one of the workshops and exhibition ‘walk and talks’.
