Ogilvie followed this show with a solo exhibition at Northern Print - Gallery 2, entitled; ‘Tobacciana’, January - March 2007. This exhibition was based on Ogilvie’s work researching the act of smoking and its historical gamut of associations. She developed a graphic suite of screen prints exploring types and scenarios. Typical of Ogilvie’s research, her aim is not to force a particular standpoint, but to present the peculiarities in these associations at a time when tobacco use is at the end of an era.
