Eden Court Theatre
Making a show of ourselves!
You cannot escape the Spey Art Group this month: we’ve got work in two prominent Highland galleries!
The main show is at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness, where you can see our epic exhibition, Consequences, for the second time. If you missed it in September last year, then this is a chance not to be missed.
And it’s on show throughout February so there’s really no excuse!
AND! You can also catch members’ work at the Iona Gallery in Kingussie this weekend (until Feb 5). Before Christmas we did a workshop on decorating masks – resulting in our famous group shot. Angus has arranged that these unique creations – and those done by some of his pupils at Grantown Grammar – are being exhibited for the Food on Film Festival.
This well-known event is celebrating its 10th year with lots of events and films over the weekend so making a trip down the valley is highly recommended.
Jan 25: The return of Consequences
Yes – it’s back!
Consequences is going on show at the north’s premier arts venue – Eden Court Theatre in Inverness.
This is a brilliant chance for the group to display their work in the Highland capital – and for it to be seen by thousands of peole.
The chain of works will be hanging during the whole of February.
In preparation for this, Rona Smith, who organised the exhibition, needs to collect the works.
To that end, members must bring their works to the Wednesday Jan 25 class.
Rona and her team will be hanging the pieces at Eden Court on January, with the exhibition officially open the following day.

Any further questions about the arrangements should be directed to Rona Smith.
Otherwise, the Jan 25 class will be an evening of tutoring with Angus, with a chance to print any etchings started last week.
The January forecast – a brush of fresh air
We’re back to class on Wednesday and Angus has drafted a rough plan for the term. You can find the schedule on the Spring Term section of What’s On.
Highlights include airbrushing and making ceramic tealight holders. It is set to be a busy month and hopefully there will not be too many classes cancelled because of poor weather.
Another thing to look forward to this month is the launch of Consequences at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness. The exhibition will be on show at the end of January so make sure you know where your work is so that it can be transported to the gallery in time for the opening. More information to follow.
See you all at Grantown Grammar on Wednesday night!
Morvern and Rona have done their bit for our Consequences challenge and now Elaine is hard at work on her response.

The good news is that Rona has contacted Eden Court Theatre in Inverness and they are interested in hosting the exhibition sometime in early 2017 – no pressure then!
