Scottish Natural Heritage Exhibition

Keith Salmon Art Exhibition, Scottish Natural Heritage, Inverness

SNH Inverness Exhibition 4

The exhibition I’ve held at Great Glen House, the head quarters of Scottish Natural heritage in Inverness, ended last week and on Monday I had to travel up and collect the work.

It’s been a good experience and the space was great …big and light.  The show ran throughout August and contained a selection of 25 paintings and drawings.  As this wasn’t a gallery show it was difficult to know quite how many people would see it.  SNH promoted it well through their press officer and certainly a number of people from outside the organisation turned up for the talk I did about the work on 20th August.

This said, the majority of those who viewed the work were employees of SNH and I understand it created a fair bit of interest ….but then they did all have to walk by it to get to the canteen! Oh well, I sold a few paintings so quite good really.   As a follow up I’ve been asked to write a short article for the SNH magazine.  This could be quite useful as the magazine is circulated to a large number of people …should be a good way of getting people to my website.

The work is all back in the studio now and I’m already planning for the Wasps Open Studios Weekend on Saturday / Sunday 3rd/ 4th October 2009.  Much cleaning and tidying to be done before then, but that can wait …painting to be done now.

After selling a couple of the long thin paintings (76 x 23 cm) at Inverness, I need to get a couple of replacements done.  I enjoy working in this format and it certainly seems to be popular.  I have one painting on the go at the moment …this based on a day a couple of years ago when we did an icy scramble on Ben Lui …it was a fantastic and exciting day  and the colours and light were quite special.  That said I’m still struggling to get this down in paint but hopefully I’ll get there soon.
