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:

Ben Fosker
Bill Witherspoon
Carolyn Barlow
Cathy Sidhu (now Cathy Van Hoppe)
Fergus Hall
Jennie Ashmore
Julie MacLeod
Martin Wilson
Sam Samson
Shenpen Chökyi
Trevor Leat

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.
