‘Sounding Boards and Landing Boards’

The Suttie Arts Space and The Small Gallery, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary
28 September – 17 November 2019

This year Grampian Hospitals Art Trust (GHAT) announced the first of its annual exhibition prize for new graduates from Grays School of Art in Aberdeen and Moray School of Art UHI in Elgin. Meg Miller and Kim Welch were awarded opportunity to exhibit across both galleries, The Suttie Arts Space and The Small Gallery, in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Meg Miller
Meg describes herself as artist, islander and beekeeper. Since graduating in Contemporary Arts Practice at Grays School of Art, Meg has moved back to Skye to continue her practice. Meg uses her intimate connection to Skye’s landscape, its nature, history and folklore, as well as an understanding of everyday life on the island to create work which encompasses sculpture, performance and printmaking.  Following on from her degree show Meg continues to draw from the insect and human world, specifically her interest in bee-keeping. A landing board at the entrance of a bee hive can provide a good opportunity to learn about a bee colony’s health and activities. For this exhibition Meg will create a new body of work constructed from salvaged bee hives which will reflect this idea of care and attentiveness.

Kim Welch
Since graduating from Moray School of Art UHI, Kim has relocated to Edinburgh. While studying in Moray, Kim was awarded the Historic Environment Scotland Micro Residency at Dallas Dhu Distillery and an internship with GHAT for the Resonate Disseminate Project. Kim is also a founding member of Orchard Road Studios in Forres. Kim is a multi-media artist whose work is both an audio and visual representation of conceptual ideas. Her work is a sounding board for artists and audience to create conversations from which new ideas emerge. Kim creates site specific works influenced by the environment the work will be placed in. For this exhibition, Kim will create a therapeutic space to bounce ideas around and gather opinions through the use of audio visual work, large scale drawings, and an interactive sounding board for the audience to write on.

All artworks by Meg Miller from this exhibition are available for sale through the GHAT shop

This exhibition has been funded by Creative Scotland.
