About the Artist

The art found here includes, stained and fused glass, collage, sketches poetry, embossed metal work with paintings in oil, acrylic and alcohol ink. The artists present their own take on creativity, and through their willingness to exhibit, demonstrate skills to be found in the creative community of Clackmannanshire. The studio artist will be on site each day.

The white-cube gallery is front of house for studio derenz. Among this year’s Art Beat exhibitors are Janice Headrick and Bobby Rennie. Painter Janice Headrick developed her skills over years, inspired by the seascapes of Catterline, and the landscapes of the North East. She continues working with oils, acrylics and mixed media. Based now in her home county of Clackmannanshire she has taken advantage of the area, recording in her own way: Longannet Power Station before it was felled, the mood of the Ochils, the wonders of the Japanese Garden, her vision of local industry, and the waters of the area from the Forth to the Devon. Janice is delighted to be exhibiting her work through the Wee Gallery as part of Forth Valley Art Beat.
Bobby Rennie is a visual artist who paints mainly in acrylics, but over the years he has used all mediums and surfaces from wood to clothing. His current focus is painting realist landscapes and seeing them evolve into surrealist abstract works. As a painter for forty years, he is largely self-taught. His understanding of colour and fabrics has been significant in his day job, making high-end clothing. The combination of being a hands-on artisan and artist gives Bobby Rennie’s work a strength and depth that reflects the mysticism of the landscape and ancient forests which frequently feature in his paintings. He has five paintings in the UK art National Collection and he was part of the RSA Open Exhibition 2018.
