Robins return

Summer is gone – it’s pretty dreich outside the studio. And I know it’s too early to say it, but my thoughts are turning to Christmas.

This year, I’ve got a special festive product. If you have been following my work for the past few years, you’ll remember my wee robin mugs. Well, they’re back!

Look out for this one at my craft fairs over the next few months. But they’re making a flying visit to the Highland Wildlife Park!

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!

The best way to see Angus Grant paintings?

Thanks to everyone who has come to the Superfly at Logie Steading so far – particularly since there’s been so many things competing for your attention, not least the sunshine! I really appreciate your visit.

I’m delighted with how the show looks and what’s been extra special is having my wee boy there too. This time last year, during my show in Kingussie, we were waiting for him to arrive. It’s lovely to be able to show him the paintings and watch him crawl around and pull himself up on chairs. He got one of the best views of the work as you can tell from the above photo.

I’m here all week, so there’s plenty of time to make it along. You can find The Long Room easily from the car park at Logie. It’s beside the Garden Shop. See you soon.

Superfly is open!

The paintings are up, the sun is out and I’ve got ice lollies in the freezer for a lucky few visitors. Superfly is now open at Logie Steading.

I’m in the Long Room, which is beside the Farm and Garden Shop. It’s a great space to show paintings and I’m really excited to be here.

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.

 

 

Broomhill pine print by Angus Grant

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.

Colourful Cairngorms 

Newly added to my online shop – paintings from the series inspired by vintage railway posters. Now it’s easy to have a look at the work and buy online (with free shipping!).

Working on getting other galleries sorted, including some fishy pictures.
