An exhibition of new watercolour paintings by Joyce Wark opened at Vaila Fine Art on Saturday 20 March. The opening was well attended and Joyce sold an amazing 16 out of 23 pictures.
Joyce has been working towards this exhibition of new paintings for the past year. Her work in the show was in part supported by a Visual Artist Award - Shetland Arts in partnership with Scottish Arts Council, which is a bursary award scheme for Shetland based visual artists funded by Shetland Arts, Scottish Arts Council and Economic Development Unit, Shetland Islands Council.
Joyce is one of 9 Shetland visual artists to be successful in applying for and receiving a Visual Artist Award from Shetland Arts during the past 18 months. Deadlines for the Award are advertised in the local media and on Shetland Arts’ website, so watch this space!
