Triptych will include a range of work from a wide variety of talent with submissions from internationally-renowned photographer Colin Prior, Stonehaven photographer Andy Hall, artists as well as some keen local amateurs.

The exhibition comes together after over one year of artistic collaboration led by Aberdeenshire Council that will travel across the area until October, showcasing three art projects which celebrate the unique and beautiful region.

Triptych brings together the Belonging to the Aberdeenshire Ways mobile artistic collaboration, entries for the Belonging to Aberdeenshire photography project led by Andy Hall, and an exhibition of Colin Prior’s work capturing the area through a series of iconic images.

You can view the Triptych exhibition at at Ellon Library from September 27 until October 9.

Provost of Aberdeenshire Jill Webster said: “The exhibition showcases the unique character of Aberdeenshire’s people and places and tells a strong story told by professional artists and the area’s residents.

“We have a lot to be proud of in Aberdeenshire but, living here, it’s sometimes easy for us to take the stunning landscapes and natural beauty we see every day for granted.

“These projects capture that distinctiveness and character of our area exceptionally well.”
