Strathmore artists’ showcase


This weekend sees the inaugural Strathmore Open Studios take place.

Featuring the work of more than 30 artists and makers, Strathmore Open Studios takes place from Friday, August 26, to Sunday, August 28.

Various venues in Blairgowri­e, Alyth, Meigle, Coupar Angus, Newtyle and Glamis will open their doors from 10am to 5pm each day, showcasing the efforts of talented makers and artists in and around the Strathmore area.

With everything from fine art paintings and print, to glass and ceramic work, fabric-based design, wood carving and stone scultures to explore, organisers say that there is something for everyone to enjoy.
