Jenny Moran

Patients, staff and visitors at Stracathro and Whitehills can enjoy new art exhibitions.

The art gallery in The Pavilion @ Stracathro café is hosting an exhibition of the work of Fife artist Jenny Moran, which will run until 23 November.

Working mainly in acrylics, she is inspired by the landscape of North East Fife and by the majestic Tentsmuir Forest.

Speaking about her work, Jenny said, “I spend a lot of time outdoors and love how a familiar landscape can change unexpectedly with the shadow from a passing cloud, a sudden squall or a shaft of sunlight.  Being outside helps to put any troubles and worries into perspective and a long walk in the company of a muddy dog, is good for the soul.

“I have sketched and painted all my life but only in recent years have I had the time to paint more seriously.”

The exhibitions at the cafe are changed approximately every eight weeks and local artists are invited to display their work. The cafe is open Monday to Friday from 8am until 4pm.

The majority of the art on display at the gallery is for sale, with each participating artist donating 20% commission of sales to Stracathro Hospital. All money raised is used to enhance the Stracathro Hospital environment for patients and visitors.

The exhibition at Whitehills Health & Community Care Centre in Forfar will run until 16 October and features the work of Kirriemuir artist Sandra Webster, who is studying as a nurse but has enjoyed art as a hobby from a young age.

Her artwork has raised more than £15,000 for charities across Scotland through a variety of public art trails.

The gallery is situated in the main corridor of the building and is open to the public daily from 9am until 7pm. All works are for sale with 20% commission on sales being donated to Whitehills.

Situated in the main corridor, the gallery has provided space for many local artists to show their work and the public are invited to pop in and view this new exhibition.
