The seascape / Landscape paintings created are inspired by memory and experience and are developed using artistic intuition. They are not tied into any specific region or time, they are an eclectic synthesis of place, weather and season. I choose to capture and communicate my experience this way as it reflects life with its unceasing process of observing, experiencing, interpreting, storing – and ultimately – reflecting.
Scotland is a country spoilt for its natural beauty, from wild and dramatic landscapes to beautiful, rugged coastlines. It is no wonder, therefore, that this is a preferred subject matter for many of our fine artists, ‘Horizons’ is an exhibition which explores this theme.
The Exhibition Preview Opening is on Saturday 4th May from 11am onwards, where everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the exhibition with a glass of bubbly and locally handmade chocolates. The exhibition will close on Saturday 22nd June.

The son of a Fife shepherd, Donald McIntyre attended Bell Baxter High School, in Cupar Fife and went on to Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee. He graduated in 1969 with a degree in graphic design. At that time ceramics was not a degree course.
After a spell of teaching, he managed to escape the profession and worked with disadvantaged youngsters having set up a pottery for a scheme taking people from the unemployed register.
