Anagach Woods

Celebrating opening night

Posted on

Our Cairngorms exhibition is now open at Grantown Museum.

We were delighted to see so many friendly faces at last night’s opening. The art looks great and it was fantastic to see such a wide range of media and techniques being used. Pastels, watercolour, acrylic, embroidery, printing – all those lessons have really paid off!

And of course, the big event of the night – announcement of the winner of the Gordon Crisell Shield.

There was fierce voting, with a range of artworks in contention.

But the winner was Ellis Rowe, with his acrylic painting of Anagach Woods.

SAG chairwoman Angela Wood handed over the trophy to a delighted Ellis at the end of the night.

Many thanks to all who came along and especially to those members who organised, poured drinks and counted votes.

The exhibition is now on until July 1. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday, 10-5pm. Our members will be on hand to chat to visitors about the work!

We’ll leave you with a wee glimpse of what’s in store when you visit – and our member Rona Smith left speechless after winning top prize in the raffle.
