Finding inspiration at Glenrothes Art Exhibition

Today I would like to simply share with you a happy positive experience.  I am rather excited about it, which is why I am shouting it from the roof tops lol  I hope my excitement is catchy so you too find some inspiration from my share today.

I am an artist just starting to get my art work out to the public. I am participating in my very first art exhibition thanks to being a member of the Glenrothes Art Club.   I have 3 pieces of art work hanging along side lots of other great artists, one of them a portrait of my favourite German artist Lioba Bruckner  For me this is really very exciting.  It is an opportunity to get my work seen by the general public locally up close and personal.  Up until now I have only ever posted photographs of my work on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

See below for a sneak peek at the exhibition held at the Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, Fife.  With free entry it is easy to come along and see for yourself if you are able to get to the Rothes Halls.  Open Monday to Saturday between 10am and 5pm
