Superfly: my new exhibition

I’m excited to reveal details of my new summer exhibition, Superfly, which is on at Logie Steading from June 30 – July 8.

As you know, I’ve been working on loads of new paintings, trying to capture the magic of fishing that you don’t see because it’s underwater. These new works feature fishing flies that have just been cast across the loch. I’ve been striving to portray the way the light goes through the water. It’s all about showing how the bubbles and ripples distort the reflective film of the water.

I’ve also been inspired by the big fancy camera they used on the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 and I’ve tried to show what’s above and below the surface. Painting in this way allows me to add greater context to the underwater pictures.

The exhibition will be in the Long Room at Logie Steading, near Forres. The Long Room is between the whisky shop and farm shop, right next to the car park so you can’t miss it!

And you’re invited to the launch night on June 30, from 6-8pm, when you can enjoy your art with a wee glass of something and I’ll be around to chat about the paintings (or fishing!)

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.

The other side of the hill

One of my further flung events this year is on the other side of the Cairngorms, deep in Deeside.

I’m really excited to have been invited to take part in the annual Art Aboyne exhibition this year for the first time. It includes a fantastic range of 2D and 3D works from more than 60 artists. From paintings and jewellery to sculpture and photography: something for everyone to enjoy.

I’m showing a collection of fishy paintings – you can see a preview here.

The show is held at the Victory Hall in the centre of the village, from July 22 to August 12 and is open from 10am-6pm every day.

The exhibition committee even organise artists’ demonstrations. When I visited last year, there was a wood turner set up outside the hall, displaying his skills by making tiny goblets!

Keep up with Angus Grant Art in 2017

This year is going to be a busy one for Angus Grant Art. I’ve recently had confirmation of a host of dates for craft fairs and a couple of exhibitions.

I’ll be travelling the north with Exclusively Highlands and also heading into new regions to exhibit my paintings with Art Aboyne. And I’m back at The Iona Gallery in Kingussie in the summer, for a joint exhibition with well-known painter, and my former art teacher, Campbell Bryson.

Find the dates on the Exhibitions page, and craft fairs on the Events and Workshops page.

But stay posted for more events and shows – I’ve got more plans to fill up the year!
