MODELS OF MIND
Carved Stone Balls from the Islands of Scotland
22 June - 31 August 2013
The Centre will also show recent work by Jim Pattison exploring the relationship between art and archaeology. MODELS OF MIND: Carved Stone Balls from the Islands of Scotland is an exhibition of drawings, paintings and prints relating to the extraordinary Neolithic stone carvings found in Orkney and across Scotland.
The exhibition will include the beautifully carved Holm symbol stone, found in the East Mainland parish, on loan from the Orkney Museum. This particular carving was the first of ten examples of symbol stones to be studied at first hand by Pattison for this series of works. MODELS OF MIND: continues the series of events established through the Symbols in a Landscape project, reflecting the Pier Arts Centre’s interest in art & archaeology.
A programme of workshops, talks and events, designed for people of all ages and ability, will complement both exhibitions.
