Artists put North Coast 500 in frame with special show
TRAVELLERS on the spectacular North Coast 500 route around the Highlands have an extra treat on the weekend May 25, when four landscape painters celebrate the unique and diverse scenery that makes this road trip one of the most beautiful in Europe.
"North Coast on Canvas" is a vibrant art exhibition taking place at Clashmore near Dornoch, in the historic Carnegie Hall, an impressive arts-and-crafts building which will be filled with the exciting work of four well-known Highland artists.
Clare Blois, Fiona Matheson, Katherine Sutherland and Dot Walker are inspired by the colours and textures of the land and seascapes of the north.
The show ranges from large scale oil paintings to smaller works ideal for visitors to take home.
There are also original paintings to be won in a raffle for the Highland Hospice.
Clare Blois says "We are thrilled to be collaborating on this project. Artists often relish isolation, but working with others is important and beneficial to the development of our work, and is also great fun! As landscape painters we share an aim to present honest responses to our surroundings, each in an individual style.
Clare and Fiona have already successfully shown their work with Dot and with Katherine, and it is a logical step for the four of us to form a landscape collective. Further exhibitions are already confirmed at galleries in Aberfeldy and Inverness."
