It has been a very busy year but I managed to squeeze in one final exhibition entry and got accepted to show in The Meffan Winter Exhibition, in Forfar.
The exhibition is on until 31st Dec 2016, it is open Tuesday to Saturday 10.00 – 17.00 and admission is free. (Closed December 25th & 26th)
The exhibition is open to both professional and non-professional artists. (Artists must be resident in Scotland).
Prizes are awarded for both Professional and Amateur categories:
- £1500 purchase prize in Professional Category
- £1000 Colin Dakers Memorial Purchase Prize for Professional Artists
- £200 of artist material in Amateur Category
My entry is called ‘Floral Veil’ and is inspired by my love of fabrics and flowers.
The star of the show for me was Rodger Insh – check out his incredible Scottish landscape paintings at https://rodgerinsh.com/gallery/
He has 2 recent works in the exhibition: ‘Beinn Bhan near Kishorn’ and ‘Ben an Eoin (Coigach)’. The quality of his work is just outstanding (and I am not just saying that because he is my dad, it really is!), so please check his website out! Below is one of my favourite paintings of his:
My wonderful mum is also exhibiting an encaustic wax piece called ‘Heatwave’ (what an arty bunch we are!) Her encaustic wax art is fascinating, I love the colour, textures and shapes the technique produces, and although I have never tried it myself I would love to give it a go – so I should really ask her to show me the ropes.
I also loved the work of Jean Hall, who is exhibiting ‘Enigma with Japanese Anemone’ it is absolutely beautiful. You can see Jean’s work on her website https://jeanhallpainting.wordpress.com/
So! If you are in the area, pop along to show your support and maybe treat yourself, or a loved one, to some original Scottish art.
