Cynthia Corbett Gallery brings Young Masters to ROSL

 Thursday 29 June – Friday 8 September 2017

ROSL Arts are proud to work with the Cynthia Corbett Gallery to present a selection of works from a wide range of emerging and established artists at Over-Seas House, London.

The exhibition celebrates artists who pay homage to the skill and traditions of the past. The not-for-profit ethos of the 'Young Masters Art Prize prize' aligns with the ROSL as we aim to support emerging talent and offer opportunities early into the careers of international, young creatives. Many entrants of the prize, past and present will be exhibited and boast variety in medium and subject as well as artists varying in age and experience. Sitting alongside these works will be the work of more established talent represented by Cynthia Corbett and exhibited internationally, further adding to the diversity of the work on show. The exhibition will offer new works of contemporary art that take inspiration from the past, displayed in the grand setting of the historic clubhouse that is open to all visitors to come and enjoy the exhibition.

Damian Callan, Moving Figures

21 July - October 2017


Come and explore Edinburgh, Skipness and Berneray through the work of local Artist, Damian Callan. This all-new collection wanders through Scotland with Callans' distinctive style as we see the reapperance of occupied figures against familiar, abstracted landscapes. Living and working in Edinburgh, Callan takes inspiration from his surroundings as he often depicts his family days out, capturing movement and activity with his loose style that leaves space to be filled by the imagination. 

Callan is returning to ROSL having already presented his practice in an event of live drawing and discussion earlier this year. Not only is he a successful figurative painter, he also teaches classes for adults and children at his studio near Haymarket and he is the author of the books Paint Like Degas and Paint Like Renoir. His work is exhibited widely in the UK and is held in collections across the world. He has also written articles for Artist & Illustrators Magazine and The Artist Magazine as well as regularly demonstrating drawing and painting techniques at public events in Edinburgh.
