NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Westminster College will host, “Cartographies and Narratives: Work by Murray Robertson” in the campus’ Foster Art Gallery in Patterson Hall through Dec. 7.

The exhibition features a selection of work by Scottish artist Murray Robertson that touches on a number of subjects.

Robertson’s work pulls from a wide range of references, such as historical and contemporary cartography and literature, 15th and 16th century alchemy, 17th century astronomy, mariner’s reports and physician’s anatomy studies.

Specific to his home country, Robertson’s art also draws from current land use in Scotland, current and extinct wildlife species of Scotland and virus research conducted at the University of Glasgow Centre of Virus Research.

Robertson often combines pen and ink drawing, graphite drawing, watercolor painting, screen printing and digital printing techniques in his work.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
