Art Exhibition Opening Day!

Art Exhibition Opening Day!

Today (30/08/16) is the opening day of the Hillhouse and Earnock Art Groups exhibition here at New Lanark. The Hillhouse and Earnock Art Groups have painted a broad range of paintings which are now for sale. The paintings have been created with four different types of mediums. They range from Watercolour to Pastel to Acrylic and to Oils. The Exhibition can be found in the River Room, which is located in The Institute.

The art exhibition is here from today until the 26th of September, 10am-5pm. This is the second year the art groups have made New Lanark their chosen location to sell their paintings. There are many paintings available to purchase with prices ranging from £5 to £500! There is a broad selection of themes on offer; from an exquisite painting of a teddy bear to a colossal painting of waves crashing together generating the power for a storm. The theme that stood out was the New Lanark theme, which had paintings of the buildings here in the village. There was a full section dedicated to New Lanark with extremely impressive artwork!

In charge of the opening day is ex school teacher, Heather Darling. Heather is an art enthusiast who loves to encourage adults to paint. All members in the group are keen artists who all contribute to the exhibitions. There are 3 art groups in Hamilton which are always looking for people to join! Heather and her team encourage any adult to join their groups, no matter what level of experience you have- from beginners to Picasso’s! The groups visit galleries and exhibitions mainly in Edinburgh and Glasgow areas. If you are interested in joining one of the groups feel free to contact Heather Darling at [email protected] for more information.

Here are some other paintings The Hillhouse and Earnock Art Groups have to offer…
