Another In the Garden with Friends artist, Dave Hunt, has written a piece about the upcoming Fortingall Art Summer Exhibition which opens on the 21st July 2018.
Jo Cound will also be joining Dave at the exhibition, alongside some other great talent!
So copied, rather than re-pressed (or whatever the term is), here is his article for you to enjoy.
It’s now just 5 weeks until the Molteno Hall in the picturesque Perthshire village of Fortingall will be opening its doors for an annual art exhibition that attracts visitors from both the local community and across Scotland, and beyond.
…. in the words of our esteemed Chairman, artist Eric Timms …
“Glen Lyon is said to be the longest and loneliest Glen in Scotland. True. But it is also the most creative Glen in the entire country. If you doubt this ambitious statement then come to our exhibition and make up your own mind. 35 top local artists will proudly be displaying new, fresh and exciting work that always surprises those that see the work.
Photography, oil paintings, water colours, fused glass, sculptures, contemporary furniture are just a few of the mediums on display. Jewellery that will bring the romantic out in you. Ceramics to contemplate. Contemporary ideas that will confuse and delight. Meet the artists who spend their time trying to make this world a better place to live in. They too will confuse and delight you.
Hop onto our website on www.fortingallart.co.uk and follow the artists who will be exhibiting by travelling around their websites and blogs. All the information you need to find us, and more, is there.
As Picasso said. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”.
See you there dusty folk.
Eric Timms. Chairman.”
Fortingall Art Summer exhibition starts on Saturday 21st July and will be open every day until Sunday 5th August – admission free.
