The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is supporting an art exhibition at the Sayle Gallery in Douglas.
‘Embers’, which runs from 6th to 29th March, is a collaborative exhibition by internationally-recognised war artist Arabella Dorman and Sayle Gallery artist Gary Bennett.
The Steam Packet Company has provided free transport of Arabella’s works to the Island for the exhibition.
The gallery will feature these paintings from the frontline in Afghanistan alongside a series of prints and sculptures produced by Gary, all dealing with the human side of conflict and the memory of it.
Damian Ciappelli, Chairman of the Sayle Gallery, said: ‘We are delighted to be exhibiting the work of leading British war artist Arabella Dorman, and very grateful to the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company for helping to make it possible.
‘Supported by local artist Gary Bennett, this prestigious exhibition is one of the highlights of our exhibition calendar and will give visitors the opportunity to experience two exceptional war artists, and reflect on the true nature of conflict through the lens of human experience.’
Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward added: ‘The Sayle Gallery explained this was a rare opportunity for outstanding works by celebrated war artist Arabella Dorman to be exhibited in the Island, and we were delighted to offer our support to make it a reality.
‘I hope as many people as possible take the opportunity to visit the exhibition.’
The Sayle Gallery, in The Colonnade, Harris Promenade, is open from 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday and 1.30pm to 4.30pm on Sundays.
