Colours Make A Splash At Milton Art Gallery

Aberdeen Artists Society at Milton Art Gallery

An exhibition featuring work from some of Aberdeen City and Shires most talented artists has opened at Milton of Crathes.

The 84th annual Aberdeen Artist’s Society exhibition is being held outside of Aberdeen City for the first time with more than 70 members’ work being displayed at Milton Art Gallery, Milton of Crathes, as part of the Colours exhibition.

The exhibition is open to the public until 29th October and features stunning traditional and contemporary artworks from both professional and amateur artists using a variety of media – painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, jewellery and photography.

Aberdeen Artists Society is now one of the longest established artist-led organisations in Scotland. It was first formed in 1827 by a small group of artists in Aberdeen, led by James Giles. Their aim was to aid the cultural development of Aberdeen. Annual and biennial shows were held in Aberdeen Art Gallery until the First World War. After the war the exhibitions returned biennially.

Thanks to the support of local companies, during the 1980s the association was able to facilitate the provision of prizes, awards and bursaries to the benefit of young aspiring artists.
