A RESPONSE to the experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic has formed the basis of a new exhibition in Dunbar.

‘On Reflection’ shows Kate Henderson, known for her vibrant colourful paintings and stained glass, reflecting on the last two years.

The exhibition, at Dunbar Townhouse Museum and Gallery, runs until May 15.

The Haddington-based artist showcased her work at Edinburgh’s Doubtfire Gallery earlier this year.

She said: “This work has developed during the pandemic.

“I felt drawn to repeating a tree shape… to mark and indicate a repeat of the days.

“I spent much of my time watching, waiting and looking at the trees in my locale bursting into leaf as they moved through the seasons.”

Trained in stained glass at Edinburgh College of Art in the early 1990s, the artist has built up a portfolio of commissioned stained glass for public and private buildings across Scotland and Europe.

During her career, she has won awards for her paintings from the RGI and the RSW and is an elected associate member of the British Master Glass Painters, a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists, and has been chair of the Scottish Glass Society.

Lesley Smith, team manager arts with East Lothian Council, encouraged people to head along to the exhibition.

She said: “East Lothian has a thriving arts scene, with many artists and craft-makers choosing to live and work here.

“Supporting and developing the arts provides a wide range of benefits and East Lothian Council recognises the significant role that the arts can play in the lives of individuals and communities in the county.”
