Announcing the 2022 Reopening of Caol Ruadh Scottish Sculpture Park


With; “Nature’s Whimsical Women”
Environmental Sculptures by artist Kathy Bruce.
Where: Caol Ruadh, Colintraive, Argyll, PA22 3AR
When: Thursday June 30th – Monday August 29th 2022

Kathy Bruce is an international environmental artist based in Scotland. Her
sculptures at Caol Ruadh are inspired by the children’s book “Three Ladies
Beside the Sea” by Rhoda Levine illustrated by Edward Gorey. They
compellingly evoke the mythology of women in Nature in the dramatic
setting of the gardens, and sea views at Caol Ruadh, by the burnt islands on
the Kyles of Bute.
The sculptures are bamboo and willow figures site specific to the features of
the Caol Ruadh landscape. Her selection of natural organic materials is
typical of her practice, with the willow and bamboo cut from the Caol Ruadh
garden and the Walled Garden at Ardentinny.
Nature’s Whimsical Women is Kathy Bruce’s first one person exhibition in
Scotland. She is a member of Visual Arts Scotland with her work recently
shown in the 2022 VAS “Reverb” Exhibition. She has created installations
internationally in US, Canada, France, Denmark, Senegal, Peru, and Taiwan.
