Rhythms of Land and Sea (2014)

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham travelled to Stromness, Orkney in the summer of 1994 to oversee the installation of an exhibition of paintings and drawings at the Pier Art Centre. When she arrived she was immediately captured by the spell of the islands and stayed on for several weeks, returning there the following year. Celebrating this event thirty years on, the exhibition pays tribute to how the islands inspired her work while providing a context alongside the art of other Orkney inspired artists.
