A new art exhibition inspired by the animal kingdom has opened in Deeside.
Feathers And Fur will be on show at the Milton Art Gallery, near Banchory, until November 10.
The venue in Milton of Crathes is hosting the work of several established and new artists, who have created paintings, prints, sculptures and ceramics.
Their work depicts animals of all shapes and sizes – from around Deeside and from around the world.
Gallery manager Kareen Blyth said: “Feathers and Fur showcases some of the finest examples of our most loved wildlife and exotic animals.
“From some of our more domesticated pets, to lions and leopards and squirrels, our artists really have captured the beauty of the animal kingdom.
“The exhibition also demonstrates many different media – from birds of prey painted on feathers to ceramics, wire, paint or pen, our artists really do bring out the best in every form.”
