Strathpeffer and beyond!

It’s always a pleasure to get the chance to exhibit paintings further afield so I’m delighted that some of my fishy paintings will be at the annual Strathpeffer Art Fair.

The show started today (Thursday November 23) and runs until Sunday. This is a huge exhibition and sale taking place at the village’s lovely Victorian pavilion. It’s my second year taking part alongside scores of Highland artists and I can thoroughly recommend it for a visit.

Opening hours are:
Friday 24th Nov – 10am-8pm
Saturday 25th Nov – 10am-6pm
Sunday 26th Nov – 10am-2pm

 

And because your Christmas shopping missions continue for a few more weeks, I’ll be at Castle Fraser, Inverurie, on Saturday and Sunday with the Exclusively Highlands event. More information here.

And for good measure, I’ll also be represented at a wee fair closer to home, at The Pagoda in Grantown. This event runs on Sunday only, 10am-2pm. Got a wee helper going along!

A wee preview

With a packed summer of exhibitions and craft fairs about to start, I’ve been busy preparing my work. Painting, framing, printing mugs and packaging up greetings cards, along with lots of other little tasks that come along with these events.

Got some new paintings framed for the various shows I’m involved in (See Exhibitions page and Events and Workshops page for more details of where I’ll be). A couple of classic fish portraits and a favourite view of Loch Morlich, looking up to the Cairngorms.

There’s a few more in the pipeline, which I’ll try and share when they’re done!

Don’t miss the Creative Cairngorms exhibition!

Last night I was at the preview of the Creative Cairngorms exhibition at the Moray Art Centre at Findhorn.

If you’re in the Moray area, I would recommend having a wee look. I’ve mentioned before that this is a lovely gallery space and it’s always great to see the breadth of work that the Creative Cairngorms group produces. As well as paintings, there’s photography, jewellery, glasswork, pottery, collage and screenprints: definitely something for everyone. My contribution includes some of my fishy portraits.

The show is on until the end of the month so there’s plenty of time to visit! Here’s a few pictures of my work on the walls but there’s a few more snaps on the Creative Cairngorms Facebook page.

Some trout portraits

Finished these fishy portaits and am looking forward to sharing them at a new exhibition next month.

They’ll be part of the Creative Cairngorms exhibition at the Moray Art Centre, Findhorn, from April 4-30. It’s my first time showing work here but I visited recently as part of Joanna Wilson’s exhibition preview and it’s a great space.

And of course I’ve got a few more portraits in the pipeline…tight lines…
