Land and Sea
27 January-3 March. Entry free. Fidra Fine Art, 7-8 Stanley Road, Main Street, Gullane, EH31 2AD. 
A deep connection to the land and sea links together the artists on display in this exhibition, at Fidra Fine Art Gallery. Kirstie Behrens focuses on detailed etchings of Highland landscapes as well as the woodland around her home in Fife. Andy Heald and John McClenaghen both paint outdoors when they can, especially around the coast of East Lothian. Both artists create canvases which are highly expressive, but the results are very different.
