PATIENTS, staff and visitors at Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre in Forfar will be able to enjoy a new joint art exhibition featuring hens, cats and lots more.

Situated in the main corridor of the centre, the gallery has provided a venue for many local artists and the public are encouraged to pop in and view this exhibition of dramatic and colourful art works.

Local artists Liz Watson, who lives in Charleston near Forfar, and Barbara Robertson, who lives in Douglastown, will be sharing the gallery space for the next few weeks.

Both artists graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee.

Liz’s artwork at this exhibition features mainly seascapes using a variety of mediums including collage, acrylics and pastels. She has exhibited locally as well as in Ballater and Stirling, and she is also a member of the Aberdeen Artists Society.

Fellow artist and printmaker Barbara is showing an eclectic selection of coloured lino-prints of hens and other feathered friends as well as Scottish landscapes. Barbara has exhibited her prints in Forfar, Dundee and Dunkeld.

Exhibitions at the centre are changed every eight weeks with each artist donating 20% commission on all sales to the Whitehills Arts & Environment Fund. All money raised is used to enhance the Whitehills environment for patients, staff and visitors.
