Two summer outings were well attended. Some of this sedate looking group at Aden Park went on to have quite an evening.
A sunny, if blustery morning was enjoyed at Cruden Bay, followed by a very tasty lunch, and some of us even got down to some art!
This years exhibition was a great show of all the varied talent in the group. Here is a shot of the Academy pupils receiving their awards
Our Annual Exhibition started today. There’s lots to see, a really wide range of styles and techniques, and some lovely jewellery. If you have been wandering around Ellon today wondering where we are – we are in the UPPER ROOM in the KIRK CENTRE and will be there from 8.00am – 4.00pm tomorrow (Saturday June 2nd).
We are holding our annual exhibition on Friday June 1st (8am -8pm) and Saturday June 2nd (8am – 4pm). Most of the art exhibited is for sale, though the exhibition is primarily to showcase our work, which includes paintings in watercolour, oil and acrylic, prints, cards, crafts and jewellery. The exhibition also includes art work by S3 pupils at the Academy, three of whom have been awarded prizes for their efforts. Star prize in the raffle is an original painting by a local artist. Entry is free – please come on in and take a look.
With only four weeks to go to the annual exhibition, our art sessions have an air of industry and focus. Some of us are honing our skills, others working on a piece for the exhibition, everyone is enjoying the buzz
Here are some shots from the recent publicity day at Ellon library which was a huge success to raise the group’s profile.
