The small gallery space in the hospitality area of The Acorn Centre in Inverurie's West Church continues to be a popular space for local artists to exhibit their work for a month at a time.

During October the gallery co-ordinator, Liz Young, will be exhibiting some of her art work.

She studied drawing and painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and taught art in the city before getting married and setting up home in Inverurie in 1980.

For a couple of years she continued to teach art in Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen until her family came along.

Once her two boys got a bit older she returned to teaching as a supply teacher and latterly worked with pupils with Asperger's Syndrome.

She said: "My work covers a range of subjects including portraiture of people and animals, still lifes, landscapes and cityscapes and flower studies. I mostly work in oils and acrylics.

"Most recently I have been painting children riding dinosaurs and examples of these will form part of the exhibition."

The display will run from Tuesday, September 28 until Saturday 30th October. The hospitality area in The Acorn Centre is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am until 3pm.

Any artist or groups interested in exhibiting in The Acorn Centre can contact Liz on 01467 622889.
