Alban Arthan ~ Light of Winter
The third exhibition by the Animus ~ Art for the
World Soul artists collective, Alban Arthan ~ Light
of Winter was held in November/ December,
2016, at the Hub in Eskdalemuir.
Contributing artists were:
Cathy Sidhu (now Cathy Van Hoppe)
The music of Morag Brown and Lewis Powell Reid
formed a soundtrack to the exhibition.
Alban Arthan is a Druidic term for 'light of winter.'
If spelt Alban Arthuan, it means 'light of Arthur',
referring to a mythical Arthur Pendragon sleeping
beneath a mountain who will one day reawaken.
Given the growing interest in the truth hidden within the
old Arthurian tales, particularly with Fergus's developing
body of work, it felt like an apt name for this show.
Here are some images from the online
exhibition which accompanied the one in Eskdalemuir,
for which each artist showed two pieces of work.
