To Every Thing There is a Season

Exhibition starts 2017-11-11

ABOUT THE ARTIST

‘To Every Thing There is a Season’, a passage from the Book of Ecclesiastes (3:1-8), became the lyrics of Pete Seeger’s song ‘Turn Turn Turn’ in the 1950’s. This song was originally released in 1962 as ‘To Every Thing There is a Season’ on the Limeliter’s album ‘Folk Matinee’ and later on Seeger’s album, ‘The Bitter and the Sweet’. It became a hit for Judy Collins in 1964 and an international hit in 1965 when it was adopted by the American folk rock group The Byrds. In 2008, it became a hit by Bruce Springsteen. In conjunction with this exhibition, 12 invited gallery artists have painted spring, a time of natural renewal; summer, a time of light, joviality, expression and wholehearted action; autumn, a season of transition and Nature’s ‘last hoorah’ and winter, a season for dormancy, introversion and contemplation. The artists’ interpretations of this lyrical passage and its influence on lyrics by popular icons of the 20th century provide a fasci-nating experience for viewers of the exhibition.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

What fascinates me about the Scottish Highland landscape is that within the elemental expanse of sky, mountain, loch and glen are tenuous, tentative veins of human habitation. In these four paintings I have embarked on a seasonal journey, glimpsing highland life and vista’s and as a memory of trips to the highlands in my youth. Keith Byres is a Scottish Artist and Studio Rep at Wasps Artists’ Studios Langstane, living and working in Aberdeen.
