Art lovers in Edzell and across Angus are to be given a unique opportunity to buy a limited edition print of a Scottish racing legend.

The Wirren Gallery in Edzell has a print of Jackie Stewart, OBE, taking part in the 1969 German Grand Prix.

The print, by well-known Angus artist Jonathan Mitchell, shows Stewart in the Matra MS80.

Art lovers will not only get a piece of art, but they will also be helping charity, as the proceeds of the sale of each print are going to a very deserving charity, Dyslexia Scotland.

Jackie Stewart was in the spotlight last month as the three times Formula 1 Champion was awarded an honorary doctorate by Edinburgh Napier University for his work promoting awareness of dyslexia.

Mr Stewart is president of Dyslexia Scotland and, having suffered with dyslexia himself, he is very keen to raise awareness of the condition.

The original painting of this print, which was donated by Jonathan Mitchell to raise awareness for Dyslexia Scotland, sold at auction for £5,175 at the prestigious Goodwood Revival in September of this year.

Following this sale a limited number of prints of the painting, signed by both the subject and the artist, have been released for sale.

The Wirren Gallery is therefore very pleased to be able to offer a limited number of these very special prints which retail at £250 for an unframed print or £325 for a framed print.

The Gallery also has a number of original oil paintings and prints by Jonathan Mitchell currently on show. The gallery also has a mixed exhibition of paintings, ceramics and jewellery by other artists including Helen Fay, William Brian Miller, Bel McCoig and Beverley Hutton-Moore to name a few.

Situated at 40A High Street in Edzell, the gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday.
