Local MP opens exhibition showcasing work of artists from across North East Fife

An exhibition showcasing the wealth of artistic talent across North East Fife has been opened by local MP Stephen Gethins.

And over the course of this weekend (August 26 & 27) Lomond Art in Cupar will open its doors to the public for an art exhibition featuring the work of many well-known local names.

Situated on the banks of the River Eden overlooking the Lomond Hills, the family-run gallery will feature the work of Jean Drysdale, Lena Ferrier, Roderick Gauld, Siv McArthur, Donald McKenzie and Sharon Reid as well as Vicky Coull, who also recently held an exhibition in the Stephen Gethins’ constituency office in Cupar.

The opening event also included music by former Bell Baxter High School pupil Calum Winter, one of the most talented young pipers in the country.

Commenting, Stephen Gethins MP said: “I was delighted to be able to open this exhibition. The location at the bottom of Cupar’s historic Cow Brae is fantastic and it is great to see a small family-run business giving local artists the chance to show their work. “

Katrina Finnon of Lomond Art said: “Family is very important to us, so we hope people will come along and feel free to bring their children too. We’d also encourage anyone who is coming along and has a disability to let us know so we can keep spaces in the car park free. “

The exhibition runs from 10am – 4.30pm tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/lomondart/ and the website  www.lomondart.com
