Imogen was invited to complete a residency in Millport after the founders Janice Hunter and Tim Saville saw her degree show work at Edinburgh College of Art in 2024.

The works in the gallery space consists of pre-existing work, as well as new works that Imogen will create during her stay.

The back of the gallery space is going to be used as a studio space and workshop during the three weeks, where Imogen is inviting visitors to contribute to an ongoing letterpress text work.

The exhibition is a celebration of Imogen’s deep connection to the sea and coastal landscapes.

Through the use of materials like shells, she explores themes of fluidity and interconnectedness, reminding people of the timeless forces that shape our planet.

In a world plagued by intersecting crises, her work encourages viewers to appreciate and protect these precious landscapes, fostering a sense of responsibility towards our natural environment and each other.

A talk with the artist is being planned with details of the event expected to be announced on social media soon.

Tim and Janice said: “To meet with Imogen and her work we encounter a young artist with a social and political conscience whose work is provocative and dynamic.

"She is an artist and craftsperson whose work stands close to Joseph Beuys and George Wylllie.

"We are privileged to welcome her to our gallery in Millport.”
