Art in the Himalayas

North East artist Susan Dobson is heading to the Himalayas thanks to Berghaus kit.

Susan, an experienced mountaineer and climber, combines her two greatest passions to create her work which celebrates the mountain environment.

Susan’s recent exhibition ‘Mountains in Mind’, where she displayed her drawings from previous expeditions, was part of the 2010 Kendal Mountain Festival.

Susan will be spending the whole of February on a drawing trip to the Himalayas where she will be based at the Annapurna Sanctuary.  Berghaus has provided Susan with kit to keep her warm, dry and comfortable whilst at work, and she will be sending back words and photos from the region, which you will be able to see on the site – so be sure to sign up to our RSS feed to keep up to date.

Susan’s solo exhibition, ‘Mountains of Inspiration’ opens at the Gateshead Library Gallery on Saturday 19 March where her drawings from the Annapurna trip will be on display, as well as drawings from previous expeditions.
