Laurencekirk Artists are busy preparing for their fifth annual exhibition which is on at The Venue, Laurencekirk this weekend.

The exhibition runs from October 24-25 in The Venue, High Street, Laurencekirk.

The free exhibition is open at 10am both days but closes t 6pm on Saturday and 4pm Sunday.

Originally formed in 2011, Laurencekirk Artists Society has gone from strength to strength with three new members exhibiting this year.

Altogether some 14 artists are taking part with a total of 58 paintings on display in what promises to be an exciting and varied show.

The exhibition features a diverse range of subjects and genres in a wealth of different media. Oils, acrylics, mixed media and watercolour are all represented in this eclectic show. Though it would be fair to say that landscapes predominate, the artists hope there will be something for everyone.

David Johnston from the Laurencekirk Artists Society contacted us to let us know about the exibition and what it entails.

He said: “The exhibition also includes a section of smaller works. This not only allows original work to be made more accessible to a wider public; it also allows the artists to support charitable causes. Since 2013, Laurencekirk Artists have raised more than £750 in support of a number of local charities.

“The success of this initiative is wholly due to the generous support given by the local community. This year, Art ‘n’ Frames, Montrose, has also contributed by donating the framing for these exhibits.”
