The Local Quines are a group of retired primary and secondary teachers from the north east who meet up regularly for coffee, chat and chocolate biscuits.
Each one of them dabbles in the creative arts and crafts – painting, textile work, photography, embroidery and more!

Local Quines have exhibited their work previously at Elgin Museum, to great reception. In their own words: “Here we go again!”.

Art Exhibition – Angus Donaldson: Another Eclectic Collection @ Elgin Museum
Sep 22 @ 11:00 am – Oct 27 @ 4:00 pm

NEW ART EXHIBITION

Another Eclectic Collection

by

Angus Donaldson

Saturday 21st September – Saturday 27th October 2018

Elgin Museum

Angus Donadson

This exhibition from Angus Donaldson, his third at Elgin Museum, again comprises a mixture of subjects including seascape, landscape, and wildlife. Oil, pastel and charcoal are the main mediums he uses and, whatever the subject, Angus tries to express movement and give life to the work.

Colour, contrasts and form in Nature fascinate Angus , as they mix and blend, at times vibrant in stark contrast, at times soft and muted, ever changing with the light. Angus has always been interested in art and has enjoyed drawing and painting since his school days. To a great extent, he is self-taught, although during the last twenty years he has regularly attended life drawing classes and benefited from various tutored workshops and painting groups.

In his own words: “Painting with others I believe to be a wonderful way of opening the mind to opportunity and when challenges and problems are shared, so often solutions have a way of presenting themselves”.
