2 November 2016 – 13 January 2017
A new exhibition at St John’s Gallery bringing together individuals from the hospital and local community who share an interest in bird watching.
The theme of the exhibition was inspired by John Gordon, a regular participant at Artlink activities in West Lothian. ‘Look to the skies’ is a title originally penned by John, inspired from a body of work created around his interest in bird watching. His passion goes as far back to his childhood when he would go on bird spotting trips with his father.
Since 2014 John and Artlink West Lothian have been exploring this interest, getting out and about bird watching and focusing his artwork into more practical bird watching uses such as local Avian maps, personalised bird logs, drawings and posters displayed here as part of this exhibition.
This exhibition brings together birding enthusiasts and photographers from across West Lothian and further afield. They share in the same passion as John, observing and photographing the many different species and habitats of bird wildlife in our local countryside.
