Showcase and Gallery – an update

Following the resounding success of the online Exhibition this summer, the club has ‘repurposed’ the Exhibition function to be a permanent Gallery of art for sale.  As with the Exhibition, the artworks are being offered on a free shipping or collection basis.  The content of the Gallery will be refreshed periodically so keep checking to see what is new.  As with the Exhibition the subject matter is as wide as you could possibly imagine; well known NE Scotland locations, hidden local gems, abstracts, wildlife to name just a small selection.  Come and have a look..

The Gallery

The old website used to have a page of members artworks where they could display something that represented their style or interest.  This was well out of date and only offered a small thumbnail sized image of each painting or picture.  We have replaced this with a brand new feature, the Showcase.  As with the previous incarnation, members can present a piece of work they are particularly pleased with or they feel typifies their work. It captures beautifully the range of styles and interests that club members have.  If you are a member and don’t yet have your image in the Showcase, then get in touch with the Secretary to submit one.  Some of the art works on the Showcase may also be for sale, so it is worth viewing the Gallery as well to see if one you really like is available to purchase.

Annual Exhibition 2020

Since 1975, each summer Stonehaven Art Club have held an annual exhibition and sale.  This attracts wide interest from both residents of the North East corner of Scotland as well as from visitors to our region.

2020 was always going to be a different year for the club.  The venue for the exhibition has always been the Town Hall on Allardice Street.  However, this year the Council has closed the building for long overdue renovations meaning the Club had to look for an alternate location.  A suitable venue was identified at the beginning of the year but before detailed planning could take place, the global Coronavirus pandemic reared its head.  Along with the regular meetings and events, the Annual Exhibition has, sadly, been postponed for this year.  It will be back (in its usual home) for 2021.

As an alternative, the Club have created a ‘virtual’ exhibition which will allow you to browse work from Club members as if you were there in the town hall (though without the climb up the stairs)!  And, just like the Annual Exhibition, artworks in the show are for sale.  If you see something you like, you can purchase it using a credit / debit card (or PayPal if you use this) and have it sent (at no additional cost in the UK) to your door.

Look out for more news about the ‘virtual’ Exhibition shortly.
