Craft fairs and painting demos

My summer of craft fairs starts this weekend at Eden Court Theatre, Inverness, with Exclusively Highlands. It’s always a busy one in the Highland capital and this time I will among a range of businesses demonstrating their craft.

I’ll be doing a spot of painting so the easel will be up and I’ll be chipping away at some new works. I’m looking forward to fielding your questions about how to paint a Highland landscape.

The craft fair is on Saturday and Sunday, from 10am-5pm both days. Free entry!

Highland Wildlife Art

I’m really excited that my ranges of mugs, pine prints and cards are now on sale at the Highland Wildlife Park. I am lucky to be one of a number of local artists with work in the gift shop.

The display was set up at the weekend and is looking great.

Angus Grant Art at the Highland Wildlife ParkI also got the chance to have a wander around the park as well. I saw the polar bears – including the newest arrival playing around – the snow monkeys and wildcats kittens. And for the first time when I’ve visited, the elusive wolverine was out and about. The fantastic weather just capped the day.

I’m looking forward to working with the park: it’s a brilliant visitor attraction.

And look out for my new polar bear mug – it’s coming soon!

Keep on trucking

My craft fair season starts next month with Truck In2 Grantown.

There’s going to be more than a hundred lorries taking part in this charity event, which is taking place for the first time on Saturday May 12. The day kicks off with a massive convoy down the High Street, followed by a big display at the showfield. There will be trade stalls and entertainment, including an aftershow dance.

The whole thing is to support Friends of the Neuro Ward at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

As well as this, I’ve been adding more events to the summer schedule: you can see the full calendar on my Events page.

Craft fairs for 2018 (part 1)

This year is set to be another busy one, though my events will be a bit closer to home than last year.

I’m still in the process of confirming other events, but so far I can reveal I’ll be joining Exclusively Highlands again for a series of craft fairs:

  • July 14 & 15 – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
  • July 21 – Inverness Highland Games
  • August 3 & 4 – Moy Games Fair
  • November 16-18 – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
  • December 7-9 – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

There’ll also be a summer exhibition at Logie Steading, near Forres. More information about that in the next few months.

All aboard

I’ve added two new pine prints to the collection – Broomhill and Old Spey Bridge.

Anyone who has travelled between Aviemore and Grantown will know the billowing steam and the sound of the whistle of the Strathspey Railway engine as it takes passengers to Broomhill, near Nethy Bridge. I think it’s fitting that a series of paintings that has been inspired by old railway posters should have a railway image among them.

And the second is a bit closer to home – the Old Spey Bridge, a place full of childhood memories and loved by so many locals.

You can buy the two new prints – and the rest of the range at my online shop.

Or if you like to buy your pictures with a slice of cake, pop along to the 1896 Gallery & Coffee Shop in Boat of Garten where they are now on sale.

New year, new arty plans

I’m back at the easel, getting started on new paintings for exhibitions in the summer.

Winter is a good time to get going on new work. I love lighting the fire, making the studio all cosy and sitting down to paint. It’s not always that easy – coffee also helps!

As well as paintings, I’m planning some new ceramics and new additions to my range of mugs – stay tuned for more details soon.

I was lucky enough to have a wee commission over the festive season – a sunny picture of Ryvoan Bothy. It was a pleasure to paint such a cheery image while it was all snowy and cold outside.
