Hopetoun House at South Queensferry is the venue for an Easter Exhibition which features the work of club members Colin Joyce and Ken Young. The exhibition is open between the hours of 11am and 4.30pm from 3rd through 12th April.
The changeover of work on display in the Club Gallery in the Kingsgate Centre was completed this week and opened to the public yesterday (12th March). Over one hundred works are on show which includes a wide array of subject matter in various mediums and is well worth a visit. A new innovation this month is the inclusion of our “Featured artist of the month” wall whereby one of our members has exclusive use of a section of the Gallery in which to exhibit a wide selection of their work. The featured artist initiative was the idea of Syd Reeve who happens to be the featured artist for the month of March.
A group of club members attended a Pastel Workshop at the Duchally Hotel in Auchterarder last Saturday hosted by prominent artist and author Margaret Evans.
