Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh

Tom Wilson said he would never do it again. But despite the organisational hassles of last year’s exhibition The Chosen Few, its undoubted success has led to The Artists' Choice. And so again a host of selectors choose a favourite artist. Last year, those working for and writing about the arts

were asked to come up with a name and

their reasons why—this year it is the artists’ turn.

In many cases, senior artists have avoided naming colleagues of their own generation and have plumped for younger artists they admire and who usually work in styles very similarto their own. Elizabeth Ogilvie picks Anne Bevan working in the landscape monotones of her own preference, Will Maclean chooses one of his ex-students Edward Summerton, whose skull and jug explodes blue into the first room, while Alberto Morrocco is tantalised by Ann Patrick's purple plums. Duite independently, Ann Patrick chose her ex-teacher Alberto Morrocco and reading their reasons on the enlightening labels which accompany all the works, it is hardly surprising. Their love of colour, sun and the sensuous beauty of the world, the Mediterranean in particular, twins their sensibilities without reserve.

Selecting a ‘stalwart‘ in Ian Fleming, John Bellany’s choice moves a generation forward. And as if paying tribute to his selector, Fleming‘s tall seascape reflects the yellow light so often present in Bellany's own work. Colourist Carlo Bossi picks David Donaldson in colourful mood, George Donald takes the work of fellow object

Bittern by Sue White Dakes

:' arrangerElizabeth Blackadder(a

particularly beautiful golden picture),

and Elizabeth Blackadder admires the ' anatomy of shape which Charles Stiven

so cleverly moulds in grey. While spotting the artist in this

light-hearted exhibition, the Open Eye

have also made it possible to fit in a little bird-spotting. Of this feathered

; collection it is Sue White Daks‘ bittern which reigns supreme (see photo).

Standing on one giant foot its

3 burnished leathers curl softly in metal. ; Tackling bird life lorthe first time, she

does it with great aplomb. Alice Palser’s birds are small and shy, more the type that hide in trees. Blue tits and wrens are deftly shaped in painted clay. Michael and Liz O'Donnell‘s sycamore nests with painted totem

. animals are worth looking out for as are

the graceful swan jugs by Barbara and

Michael Hawkins and the lions with


feathered friends by Anna Noel. Altogether a good 1989 opener for the Open Eye. (Alice Bain)
