Phew, that went by quickly! A good turnout again this year for the Art Fair with lots of good comments & feedback, locals and visitors alike and the local schools had a good time visiting as ever. Strathprint chose 7 pictures to go in their next years calender. This years favourite picture as chosen by you folks was Nicky Dagnall’s Stormy Skye (featuring two wild looking sheep). We look forward to seeing it on next years poster. Although the number of pictures was down on last year, sales were up. About 25% of paintings sold. Not sure why, maybe there were just more good pictures…who knows?
Thanks to everyone who helped out and contributed, and everyone who came along too. Looking forward to next years now!
A busy night last night at the preview. Great to see everyone and catch up with lots of local artists and other friends. Thanks to Manuela’s Wee Bakery, Lenice Townend, and the West Highland Dairy for the catering and some great music from the Renewables (Donald and Harvey). We’re open through til Wednesday with a late opening night on Tuesday (9pm) – hope to see you.
Looking forward to this years Art Fair! I hope all you artists out there are painting and drawing and working on something for the exhibition. If you haven’t exhibited before and you would like to, have a look at the info for exhibitors page, and get in touch if you have any questions etc. We’ll send out information to previous exhibitors nearer the time. Please note the date – 23rd – 27th August. (a provisional date was mentioned before).
Well that’s it til next year! This years Art Fair was the biggest yet with 156 works on display from 64 artists. Unfortunately sales were down a bit from previous years, but we had just as many visitors, including the local schools. Six pictures have been chosen by Strathprint for their 2014 calendar.
