June 17 – July 1
The spectacular Cairngorms provides the inspiration for the 2017 annual exhibition by the Spey Art Group (SAG).
Members have been hard at work producing original art for the summer show at Grantown Museum from June 17 to July 1.
And the event will open with a special open preview night on June 17 from 6.30pm to 8pm. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
The popular group is going from strength to strength, with a boost in member numbers this year.
Sessions are held weekly on Wednesday nights during term time at Grantown Grammar School, with tutoring by art teacher Angus Grant. Lessons cover the basics of using a range of media, including acrylic, watercolour, silk and pastel, while also sampling more technical skills. For example, this year members have also tried airbrushing and pottery.
Chairwoman Angela Wood said: “We are all looking forward to the new show and seeing the huge range of works produced by our members and associates. There is such a wealth of talent within the group.
“It is great to be back at Grantown Museum, which has always been a fantastic venue for us.”
Those attending the preview will again be asked to vote for their favourite artwork. The piece will wins the most votes will be awarded the Gordon Crisell Shield. This prize, which was introduced last year, is named after a long-standing member of the Spey Art Group who died in 2015.
