William Wallace graduated BA (Hons) from Gray’s School of Art in 1990. He has taught at Thurso High School from 1991 to the present and married his wife here at Lyth Arts Centre. His work has focused on still life painting in oils, with subtle viewpoints, distorted perspectives and conflicting spatial relationships between objects. These new works include figurative and landscape images as well as still life elements and often feature bold areas of colour or texture. Currently he is teaching part time to enable him to spend more time on creating his work.
Susan Parmenter was born in Sussex and moved to Caithness in 1994. She has exhibited and undertaken commissions from various sponsors beginning in the 80’s to the present, widely through the UK. This new exhibition “Have bus pass will travel…” is based on her journeys around Caithness locations using only public transport. The concept was to arrive, sketch and get home within a day. The resulting exhibition is a collection of wonderful sketches of local views.
Hazel Cashmore was born in Coventry and moved to Caithness in 1978. She has painted and exhibited since 1983. Inspired by the unique and subtle landscapes of Caithness which is both now her home and the subject of her paintings. Her work is well known in our county and her work has been seen at Lyth many times over the years. She is represented by many galleries in Edinburgh and exhibits internationally.
Angus McBay returned to his native Caithness in 1977 to teach in Thurso High School. His interest in technical art subjects led him into jewellery making as a hobby. He has exhibited his work at Lyth in the past, and has been a member of Lyth committee.
