Summer Exhibition at Lochgelly 7 June 2013

This exhibition features a good range of sizes, techniques and prices and is well worth a visit.

Also on display are research and development materials including the print plates that were used in the creation of the newly launched "Dunfermline Suite".  This is a limited edition set of A4 size prints housed in an archival clamshell box.  There are 13 prints in the suite.  The Carnegie Trust have already purchased one of these for their collection and a limited number of the boxed sets are still available for sale.

The show is  on until the 8th August so do go and have  a look.  It is a really pleasant venue and there is also a show of work by Rebecca Lee, featuring stills from the film "The Happy Lands"

The LOCHGELLY CENTRE centre is open most days  but check the website for precise opening hours.
