Patients, staff and visitors at Whitehills Health & Community Care Centre in Forfar can enjoy a new exhibition.

Running until the end of August, the exhibition features art by artist Elaine Smith.

Speaking about her work, Elaine Smith said, “I have always been keen on art and I have explored many mediums to express my impression on life and the world around me.

“About two years ago I came across wet felting while looking for inspiration to make gifts for my family and instantly fell in love with it. Working with natural products is extremely therapeutic and even more so with wool as working it through your fingers and hands you can take it from one state to another producing the most vibrant and vivid images.

“I love to combine my pictures with both wet and needle felt pieces and I love the process of getting my work to the point where it makes me smile. I have never felt so comfortable with my work as I have with felting and I lose myself in every piece that I produce. I hope you will feel the same as you brows my art.”

Situated in the centre’s main corridor, the gallery is open to the public daily from 9am until 7pm. All works are for sale with 20% commission on sales being donated to Whitehills.

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.
