Inverkeithing as art is here…

Catherine Lindow’s beautiful artwork of Inverkeithing can now be seen, looking brilliant in its pride of place, at Maker, 2a High Street, Inverkeithing! You can buy prints of it in the shop, size A3 or A2, or other sizes can be ordered by arrangement. And you can even buy a card of part of the design to send to family and friends. The finished artwork is full of wonderful details and quotes you might recognise if you came into to talk to her during her week long stint as ‘Lindow in the Window’ at Maker.

Central Fife Open Studios has been set up to give professional artists and designers in Central Fife the opportunity to show their work to the public and celebrate the wealth of talent in this area.

The Open Studios offers the opportunity to talk to participating artists about how they create their work, their methods and sources of inspiration. There is also the chance to buy or commission a piece of original artwork from an exciting range of disciplines.

Fraser Avenue photography project – artwork by p4 pupils

The photography project we have been involved in over the last 8 months with the p4 pupils of Inverkeithing Primary saw its final fruition at the school at a ‘share the learning’ event. The incredibly lively and beautiful mixed media artworks, based on the wonderful photographs which the children had taken of Fraser Avenue just before the demolition began and just after the first stage had gone, were turned into a pull-out book. The pupils were justifiably very proud of their art and loved telling their parents and carers about it at the event. See more about this project here

Memory Exhibition @ Maker

The Inverkeithing Memory Project exhibition has come back to Maker, 2a High Street, Inverkeithing, and will be displayed there until next Friday, 30th June. The artworks were created at Maker by the Memory Group, who met weekly to exchange memories of the past and hopes for the future during this time of change in Inverkeithing as Fraser Avenue gets demolished and rebuilt.

The story so far….

Catherine Lindow will be in Maker’s window for one more day – Saturday 17th June, working on the final preparatory drawings (see below) for her picture of Inverkeithing. She’ll then continue working in her own studio over the next few weeks on the finished piece. We’re so excited to see it, its’ going to be beautiful!

Tomorrow is the last day that you can pre-order prints of the finished picture for  special pre-order prices. An A3 print can be ordered for £28, (rather than the usual price of £40 for a print that size), and the A2 size print can be ordered for £54 (rather than the usual £70). We’re open from 10am-5.30pm, or you can call us on 01383271839 or email info@inverkeithingarts.org.

If you can’t make it in to make a pre-order, never fear! Maker will be stocking prints of Catherine’s amazing drawing of Inverkeithing once its finished.
