Norman Ackroyd CBE RA is widely acclaimed as Britain’s leading contemporary landscape artist and printmaker. Norman Ackroyd: The Western Shore from Shetland to Co. Cork brought together more than 33 etchings inspired by his expeditions.
The western shore of the British Isles is not only the edge of Europe but also of a continent. Three thousand miles of uninterrupted ocean lie to the west. For decades I have indulged my obsession with this now almost deserted fringe. I have visited and drawn most of the islands and landed on many. Normal Ackroyd.
