Over the next two weeks Maker will be home to SNAPSHOTS & SKETCHES – Making our mark in Inverkeithing, an exhibition of work created by eight of Inverkeithing Arts Initiative’s student artists, from our local community.
The work has been developed in progress towards motifs which will be integrated in upcoming public realm works throughout the town centre, taking inspiration from Inverkeithing past, present and future. it was developed by members of Inverkeithing Arts Initiative and commissioned for the Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration project, funded by Historic Environment Scotland, National Lottery Heritage Fund, and Fife Council. The project, running 2019-2024, is being delivered by Fife Historic Buildings Trust.
You can view the work from Friday 9th – Saturday 10th, and Thursday 15th – Saturday 17th October. 10.30 am – 5.30 pm.
Inverkeithing Arts invited three local artists and makers to provide creative activities for visitors to enjoy during a Family Fun Day on Friday 7th April at Inverkeithing Primary School.
Rustic Simplicity were helping visitors to make wooden bird boxes, Rosie Gibson ran sessions making drawing and models based on participants’ memories, and Catherine Reilly was showing people how to decorate photo frames and jars. Participants did lots of lovely work and enjoyed taking part in the activities, and were fair chuffed with their hand made objects of art and craft to take home, as you can see from the images below.
Inverkeithing Arts are currently having public conversations about possible future participatory arts projects for residents affected by the regeneration of Fraser Avenue and surrounding area. If you live in the area, and have an idea for community projects or public art, get in touch at email@example.com call us on 01383 271839.
The Fun Day was organised by Fife Council’s Adult Learning Local Planning Group, and the creative sessions were supported by Kingdom Housing Association.
