Loch Morlich Cairngorms by Angus Grant

Back to Glenmore

Regular visitors will know how much I love Loch Morlich – for the scenery and for the fishing. The waters and the mountains are a constant source of inspiration for my art so when the chance came up to show work nearby at the Glenmore Visitor Centre, I could not refuse. It seems fitting to take my art back to where it started.

From July 21, I’ll be exhibiting a range of works at the centre, which is just off the main ski road to the Cairngorms. It’s a great wee venue providing information about the surrounding forest (run by Forestry Commission Scotland), and the cafe serves excellent cake, which is a bonus!

Among the works will be my railway poster series – with new additions to the collection specially for this show. The two paintings below – of Loch Morlich and the Lily Loch – are works in progress. And I’ll have the pine prints and mugs, including my new chunky fishy mugs.

The exhibition will be open from 9.30am to 4.30pm and will run for around 10 days. Looking forward to meeting lots of new people down there!

Craft in Carrbridge

Getting ready for the first craft fair of 2017 and it’s pretty close to home.

I’ll be at Bridge 300 in Carrbridge on Saturday May 20. It’s a big weekend of community events to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the village’s iconic Packhorse Bridge.

I live in Carrbridge a few years ago and it’s got a great community spirit so I’m really looking forward to this.

The craft fair is in the Village Hall on Saturday, 11am-2pm. I’ll have my wildlife mugs and the pine prints on sale.

There’s also a heap of other events going on from Friday to Sunday, including historical exhibitions and live music and dancing. Find out more on the Carrbridge website.

Hope to see you there!

The start of fishing season

With trout season just around the corner, I’ve been working on some new fishy mugs.

Each design in this new collection is unique.

But like my paintings, I’ve been trying to imagine what’s going on beneath the surface and of course, the trout are circling the flies!

Coo Cathedral

I’m off on my travels later this week – back on the craft fair circuit.

Angus Grant Art will be at Coo Cathedral near Aboyne on Saturday and Sunday for Exclusively Highlands event. I’ve never been there before so I’m really looking forward to it. The venue looks fantastic and I reckon there will be a brilliant atosphere.

It’s a great chance to go further afield with my work and meet new people.

Coo Cathedral is also the first in a series of events for me in the run-up to Christmas. This is the list so far.

Sept 10-11 – Exclusively Highlands, Coo Cathedral, Aboyne
Nov 18-20 – Exclusively Highlands, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
Dec 9-11 – Exclusively Highlands, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

You can also find the list on my Events page – hope to see at one of these soon!

Wee loch 1

Lots of stuff going on for Angus Grant Art just now.

While I am at Grantown Museum with Beyond Reasonable Trout until July 10, I am also showing work as part of the Creative Cairngorms summer show in Nethy Bridge.

The show is on until August 14 at the Abernethy Old Kirk.

And on July 16-17, I’ll be at Inverness Highland Games and Gala to sell mugs and coasters.

Exclusively Highlands is running a big craft fair during the weekend event at Bught Park, which has a packed programme of events, including shinty, the Inverness Military Wives Choir and Highland dancing.

And there’ll be the Highland Strongman and Strongwoman competitions on July 17.
