In December2013 we held our first Open Community Exhibition. We invited local artists and makers to provide a piece of their work to show. We had a great response and received original paintings, prints, cards, wall hangings and a snow queen art doll which featured in our window display. The gallerylooked fantastic and featured an incredible range of work – oil, pastel, acrylic and watercolour paintings, prints, textiles, wood carving, stained glass, fused glass, jewellery, soap and clocks.
Our regular contributors were also included with a fantastic new range of stained glass by Lynn Morley, original paintings, limited editions prints by Kevan McGinty and a new series of small signed framed fine art McGinty prints for only £35. We also had several wall hangings by a new regular Fran Raw – The Mochrum Artist, whose work brings together a range of materials including wool, organza, shells, beads and wood together into intricate textile works of great beauty. We had a lovely range of silk scarves by Elegant Originals and her new line of felted glass tealights and hanging baubles. Although Peter Wareing opened is new studio and Gallery in the town in December we also featured some of his fabulous ceramics.
Other artists included in the show were: Angela Rogerson, Amanda Sunderland, Lynn Bell, Dave McLaughlin, Anna Moreson, Audrey Ryan, Dave Coe, Mary Nicholson, Evelyn Mackintosh, Sue Joslyn, Jenny Edwards, Gary Craig, Andy Farrington, Lou McGill, Tim Gray, Dru Hatcher, Sue Atterton, Val Horton, Mike Abel, Hazel Smith, Robert Smith, Douglas Smith, Victoria Smith, Wigtown Soap Company, Gordon Walling, Gaynor Murray, and Janet Fraser.
