Herald review by Phil Miller on forthcoming exhibition of Margot Sandeman SSA

THE paintings of Margot Sandeman are to be the subject of a new exhibition at Cyril Gerber Fine Art in Glasgow.

Born in Glasgow she was the daughter of Archibald Sandeman 1887-1941, an accomplished artist and Muriel Boyd Sandeman 1887-1981, an embroiderer who trained with Jessie Newbery at Glasgow School of Art.

A prolific painter, Sandeman continued to work until the end of her life, aged 87, leaving a substantial number of paintings and drawings in her studio.

The exhibition in Cyril Gerber Fine Art is a selection of some of scenes of figures in nature, still life and drawings and includes some previously unseen works.

Also on show will be a selection of paintings and drawings gifted to Ms Sandeman by Joan Eardley.

The exhibition will run from 31 January to 23 February.

Cyril Gerber said: “One feels that if Margot Sandeman were not a painter she would have been a poet.

“For her, the thought, the idea, the atmosphere of beautiful trees, shady lanes, sheep as part of the shape of the landscape, are rare, pure and magical things.

“For her too, the idea of young people, gentle, thoughtful, learning, is something very special – an idealistic vision of beauty, hope and knowledge being brought to the world.”

Winner of the Guthrie Award, 1964; the Anne Redpath Award, 1970; the Scottish Arts Council Award, 1970 and the Laing Competition, 1989, her works are represented in numerous private and public collections in Scotland and further afield, including the BBC, The Scottish Arts Council, Contemporary Art Society and the City Art Centre, Edinburgh.



Gallery closed Monday 24th September 2018

The Gallery will be closed on Monday 24th September for the holiday weekend. Opens again 9.30am Tuesday 25th September.

Belinda Rush Jansen : In Celebration of Wildness – Bronzes and Stone Carvings

Belinda Rush Jansen studied sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 1983. Tutored by Vincent Butler, she learned to use stone, marble and bronze. A regular exhibitor at the RSA, she was awarded Best Female Sculptor in 1996. She has numerous works in Public and Private Collections. As a child Belinda moved to Scotland, spending most of her early years on the Black Isle, amidst the beautiful, natural surroundings. Her love for wild and domestic animals has been inherent and apparent from a young age, and using the traditional materials of the sculptor, she manages to convey a deep affection for these animals. Her love and affinity with the countryside and nature is evident, and her portrayal of the animals in her environment show a firm tenderness and lifelong knowledge of being around these creatures. Comforted and inspired by the natural world, her carvings explore the essence of animal and human spirit in primal symbolic and heartfelt ways. She returns to the Gallery with a new body of figurative works. Pivotal to Belinda’s new stone carvings, the Seven Selves of Female, she says, “Wild landscape and the timeless female purpose of bearing forth, nurture and spiritual connections are the core of my work, alongside the equally mysterious intelligence of wild creatures”. Her sculpture has many recognisable paths of experience for others to resonate with. They are very personal and tactile, and reflect her interest in cave art, Eskimo nomadic carvings, Egyptian and Chinese tomb animals and their spiritual symbolism. The exhibition runs until 9th April 2016.
