Exhibition Open from 12th May – 17th Jun , Tue – Sat 10am – 5pm
Tolbooth Gallery will show a selection of work by Orla Stevens.
Orla Stevens is a Scottish artist and illustrator, based in Callander. Her work looks to connect people to nature and the land, inspired by the importance of play, exploration and positivity that both the creation process and being in the outdoors share.
Orla’s work combines influences from screen printed textiles and folk art with her adventures outside. A firm believer in the importance of accessibility across art and access to the outdoors, Orla hopes her work encourages more ways of noticing, celebrating and protecting our natural spaces.
Through painting, Orla explores her own connections to places, mapping her memories and multi- sensory experiences. Sounds, visuals and emotions are represented through colours, marks, textures and shapes to capture a sense of place.
Collaborating across a wide range of applications, Orla loves working in multidisciplinary ways; across public artwork, screen printed textiles, album artwork, murals and beyond. Orla holds a BA (hons) from Edinburgh College of Art in Printed Textiles. Work is held in public and private collections across Europe, Australia and Canada.
Orla will be available to give guided tours of the exhibition, discuss the work on show and her creative process. Free and no need to book.
