The work of more than 40 artists was exhibited at the third Rattray Arts Festival in Rattray Hall on Balmoral Road in 2012.

The exhibition was opened by Councillor Bob Ellis, who said the show represente­d a magnificen­t display of local talent, as well as that of artists from further afield.

Artists contribute­d 20 per cent of their sales to the RNLI and Wisecraft, a local mental health and wellbeing charity.

Among those at the opening was Laura Smart, local coordinato­r at Wisecraft, who had with her a replica Olympic Torch – which she carried in Scone as part of the relay ahead of the Games in London.
