Amanda Welch is a London-based artist whose practice has moved from painting through to mixed-media installation and assemblage. She first visited Shetland in 2005, and the landscape has become the subject of much of her work since.
Amanda is preoccupied with maps and explores boundaries and place.
She will be resident at the lighthouse throughout May and sees this exhibition as a work in progress.
During June, Glasgow-based artist Vicki Fleck will be in residence at the lighthouse and will create work in response to Amanda’s show.
Opening Event: Saturday 5 May, 11am - 1pm | Free
Bressay is a 7 minute ferry journey from Lerwick. The Lighthouse is at the southerly tip of the island, approximately 3 miles from the ferry terminal. Amanda Welch will be at the lighthouse during opening hours in May and Vicki Fleck will be available during opening hours in June, each will be happy to introduce you to the work on show and talk about their practice.
There is no public transport on Bressay but there is a lot to see and do on the island and it makes a good day out by car, or by bike or on foot if the weather is good.
