Folk Musicians - Joanna Powell

City Halls, until 2 February, 12-6pm daily, admission free

Joanna Powell lives and works in the Scottish Borders. She specialises in paintings of folk musicians. As a musicians herself, she is immersed in Scotland's rich tradition of folk music and oftens sketches her fellow musicians while they play. The resulting paintings have been described as "Modigliani meets Eastern European folk art". They capture the love every musician feels towards their own instrument and the strange contorted positions they end up in while playing.
