Art in all shapes and sizes is on display in Aberdeen as one of the main events in Scotland’s arts calendar takes place in a new location.
Aberdeen Artists Society (AAS) has upped sticks and moved its renowned annual exhibition from the city’s temporarily closed art gallery to a new arts space at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
It is the first time in many years that the exhibition will not be held at the art gallery, but AAS President Iain Halkett said he hoped the enforced departure would bring new opportunities.
“With the Aberdeen Art Gallery closure this year, the society is having to find new exhibition opportunities for our members in order to maintain our profile,” he said.
“The society, therefore, is very pleased to be mounting a collaborative exhibition in the fantastic new Suttie Arts Space at ARI.”
A wide range of art is on display at the exhibition and the prizewinners have been selected. A £1,000 prize from oil giant Apache was awarded to Graham Spry, Erlend Tait and David E. Johnston, while £500 from Aberdeen company MSD Design Ltd for a painting of merit went to Catriona Campbell.
The 2D, new works exhibition, at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, runs until May 31. Visit www.aberdeenartistssociety.co.uk for more information.
