Blairgowrie Art Salon, Blairgowrie Community Campus, 21 March 2013

This was the third of PVAF's Art Salons that are being held throughout Perth and Kinross during 2012 and 2013. The Salons aim to provide a relaxed, informed but informal environment in which to meet and discuss art, culture and ideas.

Guest speaker for the evening was Eddie Summerton, Senior Lecturer at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee University. Eddie talked about his work as an artist and the many collaborative projects in which he has been involved, including several that were instigated by PVAF some years ago. He showed examples of his work that included constructions, paintings, Illustrations and more. He also brought along a selection of published works, which were of great interest to the members.

Following the talk, members had an opportunity to critically discuss work in progress in a session led by Eddie Summerton. Another discussion session, on working practices and how we engage with our work, was led by artist and art tutor Luisa Ramazzotti.

Finally, needs, wants and provision for the creative arts within Perth and Kinross were discussed in a session led by Helen O'Brien from PKC's Arts Development Service.
