We’re all really sad to hear of the passing of Donald Mackenzie. Donald has contributed to the Lochalsh Art Fair every year since we started in 2009, and we always looked forward to seeing what he would bring to the exhibition. Always the unexpected! His highly popular pictures were like nobody else’s, always entertaining, but also subtle, and brilliantly painted.
He was a very highly regarded artist with work in the Kelvingrove and the V&A among others, and it was an absolute honour to have his work in our exhibitions. Donald was also a musician, and with his friend Harvey he provided live music at many LAF opening nights, playing on a fiddle he made himself.
We will all very much miss Donald’s presence at this year and future Art Fairs. Our condolences are with his partner Carol.
