A new exhibition which opened on Friday at the Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre in Forfar features the work of students of the Forfar Association for Continuing Education (FACE).

Patients, staff and visitors are invited to view the gallery, which is featured in the main corridor leading off from the reception area.

Running throughout August and September, the exhibition features the work of students attending the FACE art and wood carving evening classes held at Forfar Academy last winter.

The exhibition showcases the range and diversity of the subjects and media, such as watercolour and acrylics, used by the students who are all encouraged to pursue their own interests in art.

The art class is tutored by well-known Scottish artist Barbara Robertson.

Some wood carvings, created by class tutor Arthur Boath, will also be on display along with the FACE wood-carved logo.

Margaret Valentine, Chairperson of FACE, said: “We are very grateful to Whitehills for this opportunity to share the work of the students with the public and we hope that patients, staff and visitors enjoy them.”

Although situated within the centre, the exhibition is open to all.

Since the centre opened the exhibition space at Whitehills has featured regular exhibitions featuring the work of local artists.
