TWO new exhibitions open this weekend at Country Frames Gallery at Leslie. ‘The Call of the Hills’ is a collection of paintings by Alford artist, veterinery surgeon and marathon runner, Mark Leggett while ‘Wood’n’Trees’ features art and craft by a variety of artists.
Most of Mark’s free time is spent running in the hills and competing in ultramarathon races such as the 42 mile Devil O’the Highlands race. One of his favourite haunts is the Cairngorm Mountains which is the inspiration for much of his drawing and painting. The exhibition also includes a cow with her newly born calf in a traditonal Aberdeenshire byre.
The gallery is celebrating the International Year of the Forest with a wood themed exhibition entitled ‘Wood’n’Trees’ in which all exhibits are made of, or in some way relating to wood. Included in the exhibition are works by Alex Burnett, Nicola Chambray, Katrina Naysmith, Peter Watson, Margaret Maclean, Susie Hunt and Iain Ballantyne, and much much more.
The Gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am until 5pm but but for this sunday only (October 9) will also be open from 1pm until 5pm. For further information contact Yvonne on (01464) 820389 or visit the gallery at www.countryframesgallery.co.uk.
