Artists to debut abroad

SHETLAND artists group Veer North has its first international exhibition opening this weekend in Denmark.

Crossing Waater is a multi-media group exhibition by 21 artists which will run for three months in the Farum Kulturhuset, a cultural centre just outside Copenhagen.

Many months in the planning, the exhibition also forms the focus of a cultural programme in the centre itself with events planned throughout the length of the show.

A children’s gallery includes paintings and drawings by over 60 Shetland schoolchildren. Their exhibition also takes the theme of Crossing Waater.

Denmark is the first stage in a series of venues for the exhibition which will arrive back in Shetland and be at Da Gadderie in the Shetland Museum next year. The other venues include the Inchmore Gallery outside Inverness and the Grampian Hospital Art Trust’s Gallery at Foresterhill in Aberdeen.
