Exploring Watercolour workshop
Anyone looking to improve their watercolour skills or just learn a bit more about the medium might be interested in this workshop next month.
Jana Emburey will help participants to experiment with watercolour, which we all know can be tricky to control. See the poster below for more details.
Spaces are limited so be sure to book your place quickly.
People and Places
Thanks to all who have visited our new exhibition People and Places at The Pagoda in Grantown over the weekend.
Launch night was on Friday and it was great to see so many familiar faces enjoying our hard work. We are grateful to The Pagoda for such a wonderful space to show our work: the exhibition looks great.
We’ve got dozens of lovely artworks, from acrylics to watercolours and everything in between.
And as is now traditional, we handed over the Gordon Crisell Shield to the work voted favourite on the launch night. This year it was The Hoose Beyond, a mixed media piece by Sandra White. Congratulations to Sandra, who received the trophy from our chair, Angela Wood.
The exhibition is on all week so make sure you pop in. And do add a doodle to our big drawing – pens and pencils provided!
People and Places 2019
An exhibition of Art and Craft by the Spey Art Group.
People and Places is the theme for our 2019 annual exhibition. Through another interesting year members have been hard at work producing original work for the summer show at The Pagoda in Grantown.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 24 August – Sunday 1 September and is open 10am-4pm each day. There will be a special open preview night on Friday 23 August 6pm-8pm. All are welcome and refreshments will be available.
This popular group meets weekly at Grantown Grammar school between 7pm and 9pm on Wednesday evenings during term time. Tutoring is provided by art teacher Angus Grant and lessons cover a range of media.
Chairwoman Angela Wood said “We are all looking forward to the new exhibition, showcasing the wealth of talent within the group, this is our first year of exhibiting at the Pagoda and we are looking forward to it”.
Everyone attending the preview will be invited to vote for their favourite artwork, the winning piece will be awarded the Gordon Crisell Shield. This prize was introduced in 2016 and is named after a long standing member of the Spey Art Group who died in 2015
Anyone who fancies a nose around the refurbished Pagoda in Grantown should round there for the open day from 2pm-5pm. It’s had a chequered past but is now back in use and available for the community as well.
Yesterday’s launch night was busy, including a speech from local MP, Drew Hendry. Artwork from local artists looking good on the walls.
And watch out for the works by two budding your artists, Hannah Nelson and Gaby Meskauskaite, both students at Grantown Grammar School.
