The Westland

September 16, 2009

“The Westand”, featuring work by Joanne B. Kaar and Lynn Taylor, is an artistic celebration of the 1879 maiden voyage of the “Westland” from Tail ‘O The Bank in Scotland, to Port Chalmers in New Zealand.

The exhibit includes bookish compositions, paper and textile work, and nautical themes objects. The exhibit looks great, I wish I was able to attend. I’m a fan of victorian age polar exploration and love books & paper. Joanne’s work has been featured on the blog before, check out her website for more paper and bookish works. The exhibit opened with the sale of one-of-a-kind paper boats donated by fellow artists all over the world to benefit the Caithness Heritage Trust.

Be sure to also read the 1879 diary pages from passenger Jonathan Moscrop who sailed on the maiden voyage of the “Westland”.

On display now until September 27 at the Ancorage Gallery in Port Chalmers.
