Benny Merris at Embassy Gallery


There is an exhibition on just now at Edinburgh’s Embassy Gallery of artists associated with the SWG3 gallery in Glasgow.  A definite with us from Telford was this painting by Benny Merris: it was called SOFT PARADE, from left to right VESTAS, CERAS, PALLAS, JUNO.  Gordon is providing a sense of scale.

I was wondering about the names.. Vestas is a name I associate with Swan Vestas matches..   On the web I found on an astrology site that Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta are four major asteroids, named after Roman Gods, but the spelling is different from that chosen by Merris.
