Society Of Caithness Artists
One of the oldest exhibitions of art in Scotland
SHEILA BUTLER STEPS DOWN FROM SCA Committee after over forty years’ service.
At this year’s AGM held in the Pentland Hotel on April 18th committee members recorded their thanks to Sheila Butler for all her efforts as a member of the committee which included roles as Vice Chair and coordinating actives between the Caithness Floral Art Club and the Society of Caithness Artists. The following information was first issued for the Society’s exhibition called “Journeys”.
Sheila Butler was born in Dumfries in Southwest Scotland and came to Caithness in 1955. She has developed a distinctive style as a watercolourist working mainly on landscapes. Still life and wild plants. The wild countryside and farmland with its old cottages and narrow roads is a favourite topic. Her knowledge of the plants on the road verge allows an accurate rendering of the foreground.
Sheila exhibits regularly at the Caithness Artists exhibition and has exhibited at the Thurso Gallery. She has taken part in group exhibitions at Lyth Arts Centre, Eden Court and Riverside Gallery in Inverness and the Oxoloti Gallery in Edinburgh. Her pictures are in many private collections including the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
This is our new resource page for artists. We hope to include useful information about exhibiting and selling work and any other information that artists may find helpful.
We have included a guide to writing an artists statement and a bio as one or both of these are often required in order to exhibit.
We have also included the framing and hanging guidelines for our annual exhibition and will include further guidelines for this in due course.
