The Peacock visual arts exhibition The Cowboy and the Spaceman is going on tour! The exhibition and film by Orkney artist Colin Kirkpatrick are on show next at Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre in North Uist.
The Cowboy and the Spaceman was shown at Peacock visual arts from 11 February till 18 March 2006, showing photographs, prints, sculpture and a new film Kirkpatrick, made with Peacock’s Adam Proctor. The film addresses environmental matters close to the artist’s heart in the beautiful landscape of Orkney. A serious subject, but brought to the public with an artistic eye and a sense of humour.
The film forms the central focus of the exhibition. A new series of screenprints and photographs has been editioned and is for sale at Peacock visual arts.
