Pittenweem Arts Festival 2018
We have just returned back from a fantastic visit to Pittenweem Arts Festival, having enjoyed a couple of days meeting up with artists and wandering through their studios and homes to marvel at their work. We always feel that the quality is so high at this festival, you really are spoiled for choice.
Pittenweem is a sleepy fishing village in Fife, and is a picture perfect location at the best of times. We have always been lucky to visit when the sun has been shining, which has made the experience so much more rewarding. Studios and homes are dotted around the village, which sit along a network of quite steep hills at times, so comfy shoes are a must!
It was lovely to visit so many of our artists, including Deborah Phillips, Georgie Young, Morag Muir, Duncan Macleod RSW, Nancy Turnbull and Fiona Sturrock too.
We also saw some new artists work which really excited us; new artists we have booked for forthcoming exhibitions such as Dominique Cameron, Mairi Clark as well as Philip Raskin. There are many more, too many to mention, but hopefully you’ll be seeing some of them in our gallery in the future to watch this space!
We didn’t get to photograph everything we saw, but a few images of our trip follows. It’s on until the 12th August, so there is still plenty of time to visit 🙂
It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it! Enjoying trawling through the programme with wine in St Andrew’s the night before.
Early stop off at Georgie Young’s place. So many red dots, there weren’t many left which is no surprise at all!
Next stop the lovely Deborah Phillips, and her venue packed full of treasures. Deborah has been a regular at the festival for years.
Pittenweem is such an idyllic setting for the festival.
When we met Craig Mitchell he was lacing up these tiny ceramic shoes! We just love his work! Among other pieces, there were some of his ‘Flo’ ladies, who have been extremely popular here when we’ve sold them in the past.
Quick ice cream stop!
We were happy to bump into John Scott from Sourdust Pottery, and see how his gorgeous new copper matte raku pots have developed since we last saw him. We’re hoping to get some new work from him again soon.
Last but by no means least, it’s always lovely to see Morag Muir and her venue filled with her work. As usual, there were a few we could have taken home with us quite happily.Back to Blog
