Moray artists issued a challenge to ‘Get Creative’

LOCAL ARTISTS OF all ages, both amateur and professional, are being encouraged to ‘get creative’ in aid of an Art Therapy project.

The call has come from the Rotary Club of Forres, who are planning to raise funding for children and young people who would benefit from Art Therapy in support of their emotional wellbeing.

Club President is David Sim, who told insideMoray: “Green Tree Arts Studio in Ferness and Moray Council’s Forres-based Engagement Team will support the delivery of the art therapy project with local young people.

“Our plan is to put together a collection of artwork from professional and amateur artists, of all ages, and across a wide a range of styles and mediums, to create an eclectic exhibition which celebrates the diversity and emotional power of art.”

The initiative is being supported by the Moray Art Centre in Findhorn, who are providing the venue for the event.

Rotarian, Brian Higgs, who is leading the organising group, added: “The support we have received from the artists we have contacted so far has been superb, but we need more exhibits.

“We have some great professionals contributing to the event but we also want this to be an opportunity for talented amateurs to see their work on show.”

Anyone wishing to support the event through donating an exhibit should contact
