100 x 100 is the theme of this year’s exhibition in the aid of charity at Saorsa Gallery, Stockbridge, opening on 27th September and running to 13th October 2019.

This showcase of 100 bright, bold and beautiful Scottish landscapes by Tommy Fitchett will be priced at a very reasonable £100 (some artwork for a little more) – 25% of which is donated to Cancer Research.

“I am a landscape artist whose work is predominantly abstract inspired by nature, by the Scottish landscape and by the changing light of the seasons. My art is most fluid and expressive when working directly onto glass – I achieve a depth of tone and colour, a freedom of expression and wielding of light.  Tommy Fitchet

Saorsa Art Gallery is located in the heart of Stockbridge, Edinburgh and since 2016 Tommy has presented an annual art event for charity, raising in total over £10,000.

Saorsa’s popular annual showcase of art in aid of charity

For the 2017 show, he gave himself the challenge of completing a small work every day, resulting in the gallery walls being hung with 365 paintings.

These are stunning abstract land and seascapes .. with his palette of oils, from rainbow colours to cool monochrome, an extraordinary energy and atmosphere of the outdoor air is captured.  The effect of oil on glass creates a gleaming, glossy layer with soft, shimmering shades of light to reflect marvellous images of sun and sea.”

From my exhibition review of ‘365 paintings by Tommy Fitchet’

Once again this year, you can expect to see an evocative collection of stunning, small scale, (22 x 22 cm) paintings and other larger panorama landscapes.

Purchase one (or more!) of Tommy’s mini masterpieces to brighten your home while giving a valuable donation to Cancer Research.  Be warned, this is a popular event so get there promptly to browse and buy.
