This summer, SPACE TO BREATHE will hold the most comprehensive exhibition to date of the remarkable British painter Sheila Girling. Held in the centenary of her birth, over 70 of her large scale paintings and collages will hang in Bowhouse, St Monans, Fife, showcasing her enormous talent as a painter of deeply expressive and vibrant paintings and collages.
The exhibition will include iconic sculptures by the renowned sculptor Sir Anthony Caro, Girling’s husband and lifelong artistic collaborator. It is an honour to exhibit these two individual yet deeply connected artists side by side, while focussing attention on the woman in this creative partnership. Most of the works will be for sale.
There will be a series of free events introducing Girling’s art and discussing her fascinating life at the forefront of American and British Post War art. Also included will be events debating the evolving status of women artists in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and art workshops for both children and adults.
