"Ladies Who Lunch"

Ladies who do lunch will often find themselves sitting outside a small bistro somewhere in the sun, with their glass of Rose or a Mojhito. Their little pleasures in life helping them escape the routine of home, work and family and a chance to catch up on gossip; complain about their men and talk about clothes and their homes.

At Artery Gallery in St Andrews and Crieff, figurative sculptor Ronna Elliott is exhibiting her beautifully crafted female figures with her own take on ladies of leisure. The titles say it all, with ‘Ladies in Waiting’, ‘Pandora’s Box’, ‘Retail Therapy’ and of course, those ‘Ladies Who Lunch’. Each figure is embellished with their own marks and patterns which are not only decorative but also symbolise metaphorical fingerprints of people who have touched us in some way, often unknowingly.

Ronna graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2000 and shortly after set up her own studio in Hamilton. She has sold out on numerous occasions whilst exhibiting through Artery Gallery.
