Art in the Glen

Local artists from the Glentrool and Bargrennan area plus one contributor from ‘Life’s Little Ironies’ in Whithorn freely exhibited their work in the art exhibition held in Glentrool Old School on Saturday , November 30, in aid of veteran’s mental health charity, Combat Stress.

The art work was proficient and varied, ranging from delicate water colours to figurative art, fine art exhibits and vibrant impressionistic portraiture.

Photography was well and skilfully represented featuring the local area, wildlife and atmospheric images transposed to canvas and other mediums. There was also a number of black and white prints recording ship building in Leith docks in the 20th Century which were outstanding and evocative of that era.

The exhibition was attended by Jim McColm, the Mid Galloway councillor who expressed his interest in the exhibition and his support of Combat Stress.

The organiser of the exhibition was Pat Dobson who would like to express her gratitude to all the artists who exhibited their art work as well as those who attended ‘Art in the Glen’ and contributed to the funding of Combat Stress.
