Fellow artist Sheila Messenger and I have exhibited together many times in the past, we’re using Sheila’s studio where you’ll be able to see my paintings and textiles. There is a chance to see the inside of a working artists studio and discuss techniques used while watching an artist in situ. There will be a range of works by both of us and we’d pleased to have you visit.

Designer Angus Ross works with waste wood created during sustainable management of local precious native broadleaf woodlands. These include wind-blown trees and carefully selected, individual trees felled to improve the bio-diversity and future health and resilience of the woodland. He provides workshop-based craft education and leads a team of highly skilled wood-workers hand-crafting furniture for homes, gardens and public places. Their specialist technique is steam-bending which allows them to coax air-dried wood into exquisite curvaceous components which are combined with traditional Arts and Crafts woodwork. Ross works mostly to commission creating narrative-rich curvaceous furniture.

We offer an eclectic and quirky selection of artwork in many media by emerging and established Scottish artists. In a light and bright gallery space, the front of which is entirely glass, the artwork is the focus and there is room to stand back and enjoy it. Alongside our festival events (see under Angela Thomson) we’ll still have a selection of local Perthshire artists participating in our “Glorious Perthshire” exhibition from the 2nd of September until the 13th of October. Many of our gallery favourites will be part of this exhibition; John Robert Smith, Rochelle McConnachie, Marianne Dey and many more.

Artisanand

I’m Angela the owner of Artisanand, a gallery in Aberfeldy. When I find the time I love upcycling and re-upholstering furniture, creating textiles mainly working with Harris Tweed, making lampshades, decoupaging scallops or furniture, making felt jewellery, playing with air dry clay. I love trying new techniques and testing my skills with new challenges. During the Festival I’ll be running demos and have a range of pieces on the go so you can see the work in progress. I’m happy to discuss your projects too and make suggestions about some of the cheats I’ve found to make the work easier.

Angela Thomson

My main inspiration is the wonderful countryside and architecture of Scotland. Working from my sketches and photographs I paint in acrylic in bright colours, combining loose brush and palette knife marks with more detailed work. In my studio I have framed and unframed paintings as well as prints and cards.

Visitors love the variety and quality of artwork that we exhibit, created by talented artists from all over Scotland. In 2023 we celebrate 40 years of trading and have an exciting line up of mixed and solo exhibitions. Explore our display of beautiful art in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Aberfeldy Gallery

Two sisters living in Aberfeldy, we’ve created this stunning wee gem of a gallery and typically one of us is behind the counter. We have a gorgeous range of indoor plants alongside individually made works of art from across Scotland.

My work is heavily influenced by the changing seasons and dramatic Scottish landscapes. More recently I’ve been working with still-lifes, emerging from complex layers of texture and colour. My technique involves variations of thickness with thinned veils of colour, contrasted with sharp areas of brush-marked impasto. Ann studied Graphic Design at Edinburgh College, specialising in Screen Printing. Follow all signs to Castle Menzies and drive into Castle grounds, do not pass the Castle, keep driving uphill towards the walled garden. The Potting Shed has a long glass front. Bunting and signage for POS will be visible.
