Moray Arts Club
Saturday 3 December 2011 – Saturday 4 February 2012

Moray Arts Club (1951 – 2011) Diamond Year of celebration closes with 60X60@60 Art Exhibition at: Gallery II, Moray Art Centre.

The show highlights the quality and diversity of artwork being created across the region with sixty artworks including paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography, textiles and sculpture by sixty members where unknown, emerging and established artists share the same platform. The club has always encouraged artists from beginner to professional to exhibit their work together.

Throughout the year the Moray Arts Club has exhibited at Ardach Health Centre in association with Just Art in Fochabers; the exhibition space over three floors, Banff Castle; the members’ show, the Gallery, Elgin Library; the Elgin Museum Mezzanine Gallery; the annual open exhibition, the Gallery, Elgin Library; the St Giles shopping centre, Elgin; Starbucks, Elgin; and now at Gallery II, Moray Art Centre.

The Art Convener, Emma Cooper said we have been working closely with the Moray Art Centre in preparation for our 60th Birthday Exhibition 60X60@60. We are delighted to be back a third time in the excellent gallery space for the exhibition of art on this historical occasion. Whilst we look ahead to the future with a new program in place with excitement and anticipation; we are shadowed by the threat of closure if we cannot find a treasurer to replace our long serving member who is retiring from the position in March 2012. We would be most grateful to hear from anyone who would like find out more about the role.

With approximately one hundred and fifty members our members also enjoy, regular visits to Eden Court Theatre on either the Ballet Bus or Opera Bus in association with NADFAS; Bi-annual Drama Festival of one act plays scheduled for 2013; and MACfilm nights at the Warehouse Theatre, Lossiemouth on the fourth Thursday of the month (free to members).
