The closing date for entries for the Grassic Gibbon Centre’s annual exhibition of art is Monday, June 3.

This is the 13th year of the exhibition, which began originally as part of the celebrations of the centenary of the birth of the much loved Scottish author Lewis Grassic Gibbon to illustrate the variety of work that his writings had inspired or influenced.

A number of entries have already been received for this year with a variety of mediums. As well as a platform for exhibiting their work artists also have the opportunity for their work to be sold. Entry to the art exhibition is free.

During the years from his premature death the writing of Lewis Grassic Gibbon has been an inspiration to many people. Jack Webster wrote in the Herald in 1995 “…Lewis Grassic Gibbon, great literary light of the twentieth century, who so changed my life in the course of a day that I have remained for ever in his debt…the day I read his remarkable Sunset Song, suddenly opened my eyes to the deeper beauty of that life which surrounded me; opened my ears to the land which now seemed to have a voice of its own.”

The exhibition will run from 1st to 31st July at the Grassic Gibbon Centre.

During normal opening times: 10.00am – 4.30pm 7days per week. Visitors to the Centre can also few the permanent exhibition on Lewis Grassic Gibbon or enjoy something from the coffee shop including lovely home baking.
