Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh There is a Norwegian artist showing at the Scottish Gallery this month, not well known in this country, but hailed as his homeland‘s leading painter throughout the sixties and seventies.
This exhibition however shows a more intimate and sell-absorbed attitute than you might attribute to such a claim. In these very recent works, Thor Herambe's subjects are tew and select. Trees are caught passively in winter snow or mauve shadow, women bathe in light, a French sky shimmers overland and windows otter little breeze. With impressionistic openess and a Matisse-like understanding ot colour, Herambe collects colours without lines in the making at these most domestic. tranquil paintings.

Contemporary Scottish Landscape t nut 37 May'. The 3N) brings together some ot its most frequently display ed artists in a landscape orientated cyliibition in the First I'Ioor(ia|lery.
lingers brings together rings at gold. silver, perspex and in some cases glorious jewels, tashioned by some at the bestjewellers in the country. Look out particularly for the multi-ring sets (each ring is made up at up to a dozen separate components) by Wendy Bamshaw, the little bird with white gold head by Paul Preston, and stars by Rachael Mackie.
Above this ring cycle, and not to be missed, a young Scottish artist threads her very individual way into the world of embroidery. Di Gomery stands this traditionally lemale medium on its head weaving a strident message with surrealist edge. Breasts become eyes and a video machine replaces the home in the central position of a sampler. The most potent however, is a starry Madonna. stitched with gold and holding her mirrored rellection up to the world. (Alice Bain)
