Art Demonstration by Rosanne Barr

This weekend is the annual Festival of Museums, and to celebrate, the Stirling Smith is hosted a free demonstration at 2pm on Friday 15th May, by award-winning artist and local girl Rosanne Barr.

Rosanne, who is now Vice President of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists, was educated at Balfron High School and was a Jolomo Award Laureate. She graduated with first class honours from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, and like Jolomo, is now a highly regarded painter of Scottish landscapes. The capture of mists, storms, tides and sunsets is her speciality, and she set the tone for a new generation of Scottish landscape artists. In 2012, she was International Artist of the Year at Florida’s Great Gulf Arts Festival, and her work features in private collections in the USA, New Zealand, Thailand and Dubai. This is an unusual opportunity to see and eminent Scottish artist in action. The demonstration was be in water-soluble oils. The Glasgow Society of Women Artists exhibition at the Smith has been made possible with the support of the D W T Cargill Fund, the Martin Connell Charitable Trust and the PF Charitable Trust
