A TRIO of artists from Kilbarchan will be staging an art exhibition and sale this weekend.

The exhibition, entitled Triple Exposure, will be based at the Partickhill Bowling Club and Community Centre, in Glasgow, and feature a selection of artwork by Liz MacKinlay, Margaret Borthwick and Maryel FitzRandolph.

Having painted together at local art classes, clubs and in nature for eight years, the trio are looking forward to being able to display a range of pieces illustrating their individual styles and points of view as artists.

TV costume designer and art teacher Liz is exhibiting some of her watercolours alongside her felting and embroidery. A keen sailor, some of her works are inspired by her voyages around the west coast of Scotland.

Former Johnstone GP Margaret Borthwick, who is a current student with the Open College of Art, is primarily interested in landscape painting inspired by local spots such as the Gleniffer Braes and Castle Semple.

She told The Gazette: “I’m excited, as this is the first exhibition that myself and my friends are organising ourselves.

“It’s been a steep learning curve but we’re reasonably confident that we’ve organised it well.

“Our art styles are all very different but I think they go quite well together.”

Margaret’s work often explores detail in fungi, textures of tree bark and shapes of tangled tree branches in oils, pen and wash and acrylic inks.

She added: “I’ve become very interested in the history of the local landscapes I’ve been visiting recently and I like painting the patterns found in nature.”

Canadian-born Maryel was brought up on an apple farm in Nova Scotia, which bred a keen interest in nature.

She often paints scenes from nature, including trees, landscapes and flowers, in oils and watercolours. She is also inspired by her travels, including trips to Nepal and Antarctica.

Maryel said: “As three friends with a shared passion for art, we are delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit together at such a beautiful venue.

“We very much look forward to welcoming visitors to our exhibition and hope they gain enjoyment and inspiration from our works on display.”
