Glencoe & Dalness News
Glencoe Centre hosts an important collection of Scottish Art
The works of a major Scottish landscape painter are on show at the National Trust for Scotland visitor centre in Glencoe. Hamish Macdonald was renowned for his contemporary take on the colourist tradition, magically capturing the atmosphere and vitality of his subjects.
During July a selection of his prints will be on display including examples of his Giclee work from the recent ‘Retrospective Exhibition’. Glasgow born MacDonald is now widely regarded as one of Scotland’s most successful contemporary artists, following in the tradition of the famous colourists movement, with a fluid style and broad palette. During his lifetime – he died in 2008, his works were widely exhibited but this is a unique gathering of prints.
Set in one of Scotland’s most beautiful landscapes the Trust’s centre is the perfect location for this exhibition. Regular interactive displays tell the story of the area including the infamous Massacre of Glencoe, and put the scenery into context.
Facilities there include a splendid cafe, and well stocked shop. Visitors will be able to take the works of Hamish Macdonald home, in the form of cards and much sought after prints.
