Doire sholais is the Gaelic name for a place on the Isle of Skye (‘Doire’ means ‘grove’) and the poet/artist, Thomas A Clark, has turned the Terrace Gallery into a symbolic ‘grove of delight’. The grove begins with the structure of the Terrace Gallery with the four stone pillars representing four trees.

Each carefully considered element brings with it a sense of relaxation and enjoyment of the great outdoors.

Also in the exhibition is a new artwork by Diane Howse, Countess of Harewood. A Slow Air is a series of 15 photographs of the red kites flying in the sky over Harewood.

A Slow Air - the publication

There will be a small publication of A Slow Air on sale in the Entrance Hall of the House
