Lochs and Landscapes: a new exhibition

My first summer exhibition is approaching fast. I’m joining Campbell Bryson (former head of art at Grantown Grammar) for a show at the Iona Gallery in Kingussie in July.

We’ve both got similar influences but distinctive styles and I’m delighted that we’re going to be exhibiting together again.

Campbell’s work focus on the effects of sunlight and shadows, producing expressive landscapes featuring Highland beaches and his trademark birch trees.

I’m working on some new paintings but will be showing my recent series based on the vintage railway posters as well as others featuring local lochs.

The show runs from July 7-14. And you’re welcome to come to opening night on Friday July 7, from 7pm-9pm – there’ll be a wee glass of wine or soft drink to celebrate!

You can find out about my other events during the summer on the Exhibitions page and also on the Events and Workshops page.

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!

Kingussie Food on Film Festival

We had a lovely night at the Iona Gallery for the start of the Food on Film Festival. As well as watching a documentary about bees, Queen of the Sun, we saw all the bug-inspired artwork on display. The members of the Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists have produced some exceptional work this year. My painting is hanging up there too, along with work by my pupils at Grantown Grammar School.

The festival is on until Sunday; more information can be found by clicking here.

A sneak peek

I’m back at the easel and have been busy creating a piece for Kingussie’s Food and Film Festival.

The festival starts on Thursday night, with a showing of the film, Queen of the Sun, which is about the crisis affecting the world’s population of bees. There’s lots of other films, events and activities organised. You can get more details about the programme by clicking here.

These are a couple of details from my painting. It will be on show at the Iona Gallery between Thursday and Sunday.

Iona Gallery, until 8th of February. There will be a display of work based on the film “Kiss the Water”. There is work from Grantown and Kingussie High school pupils and from members of the very talented Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists.

The opening night yesterday was a wonderful event. The film has inspired a wealth of interesting work. I will try and post some pictures to share on Sunday. I was particularly taken by a life-sized felt trout and tea cosy with fisherman and salmon.
