IT'S THE BUSIEST week of our year as we prepare for our Christmas Exhibition opening on Sunday. We’ve been around the country collecting work, artists have been making deliveries, picture framers have been assembling frames, printmakers have been working their presses, ceramic artists have been firing kilns, sculptors have been modelling work and mince pie making is underway.
Our exhibition opens slightly later than usual this year as we did not wish to clash with Remembrance Sunday. But it means, as we are nearer Christmas, we can get into festive mood. It is perhaps too soon for a Christmas tree but we’ll have holly, ivy and fairy lights. And, of course, there will be mulled wine.
There are more than 40 artists taking part in the exhibition. Some we have been showing for decades, others have been more recently introduced. One artist we are showing for the first time is Carina Prigmore. She was born in Sweden but now lives in Strathspey, in the Cairngorms National Park where she finds endless subject matter for her impressive landscapes.
We are still hanging the show but it’s beginning to come together and it’s looking superb. Do come along on Sunday if you can from 2 pm to 5 pm. Otherwise, keep an eye on the website. We’ll have images and full details just as soon as we possibly can.
