The evening of the 28th June, saw us open our ‘Reflections on South Georgia’ exhibition which showcases artwork inspired by South Georgia. The exhibit includes five beautifully textured oil paintings and one charcoal sketch of the abandoned whaling stations in Husvik and Grytviken. These pieces were created by Theo Crutchley-Mack who completed a two-month residency for the South Georgia Heritage Trust. Theo has very kindly offered one of these paintings to the museum, if they do not all sell before the exhibition is taken down.
Also on display are a selection of scarves, designed and woven by Alison Strattersfield. Alison took inspiration from the glaciers, grasslands, oceans, sea ice and whaling stations to create her scarves, using rusty oranges, cool blues and purples to create landscapes on scarves which are unmistakeably South Georgia inspired.
