Ian Ritchie exhibition of Giclée prints, Orkney
Ian Ritchie has an exhibition of Giclée prints of the Standing Stones of Stenness at the Stromness Library, Orkney, until October.
Sales from the exhibition are to help the John Rae Society’s restoration of the Hall of Clestrain in Orphir, Orkney, where John Rae was born.
The Society’s purposes are:
- To advance the education of the public in the life and achievements of John Rae as the discoverer of the final navigable link of the Northwest Passage and one of the greatest arctic explorers.
- To advance the arts, heritage, culture and science by promoting the life and achievements of John Rae to foster friendship and understanding between members of the public, the people of Orkney, and those in Canada, particularly, but not exclusively, those areas associated with John Rae, through a broad range of activities.
John Rae will receive a posthumous Honorary Chartered Surveyor Award at the RICS, London on 13th September 2018.
