Come on take your partners for a right good skirl ! Janet McCrorie has been really busy this summer and we are fortunate enough to have some of her latest colourful dancers on the gallery walls at the moment. Everyone seems to recognise themselves, their friends, family in these original framed paintings. They make a wonderful memory jog or reminder of that ceilidh, wedding and just having a good yahoo !
Many of our green wood working course participants once they've experienced for themselves, will want others to learn the dark art ! We are often asked by
others if they can give a workshop day as a present. Well here it is ..... our
new Timber Tokens. Treat a friend, colleague or partner to a days rustic stool
or chair making ....... see here for details and tokens
Soon be that time of year again .. Halloween !!! Some textiles and cosy stuff for late Autumn. We always have a good selection of local textile makers, jewellers, potters and artists work in the gallery. Quality Scottish Craft at its best. Just in time for .. birthdays !!!
Peter Jackson has been busy ! Have a look at some of these beautiful shapes, colours and forms that he has been developing recently. Using local hardwoods his hollow turning is amongst the best out there at the moment. The new diversion into colour is brilliant. You should see that lusterous blue one in the flesh. Just great !
Yvonne brought in in some of her new work to the gallery at the weekend. Painting every day she captures the moods of the shore and sea along the Moray Firth. Living near Gardenstown, with the famous Pennan and Crovie a couple of miles along the coast in Aberdeenshire. You can smell and hear the power and tranquility she has managed to acurately "bottle her message". Big skies, big seas, big work ...
Thought we would show you some details of the truely quality wood art that we have in gallery just now. From elegant wall cabinets to exquisite boxes and kists this is craftsmanship at its best. All of these guys work in local hardwoods and in traditional methods to produce - what we think- is some of the finest work to been seen today. Adrian, Iain and David have all shown internationally and Buy Design Gallery is so pleased to continuously have their work amongst our quality Scottish craft showspace. That's the problem with the web - it's not got a "Please Touch" button - yet !
Catriona Andrews is a wonderful illustrator and artist ! Her tree studies in pen and ink are colourful, bold, delicate and composed. Really calm and engaging work from a new artist to the gallery. Beautifully framed originals. Watch out for this lass - she is good !
