hilke macintyreThe Pittenweem Arts Festival opens this weekend (1st-9th Aug). If you have never been this is when the good citizens of the picturesque Fife fishing village open their houses, garages & sheds to a multitude of local and invited artists. There's about 100 exhibitions so unless you've got a week best not to try to see everything or you'll go bonkers and loose the will to live. My advice would be get your hands on a programme, go for a cup of tea and mark off what takes your fancy.
Not to miss for me would be boo vake favourite Hilke MacIntyre (of course!) who will showing paintings & linocuts (above) as well as her wonderful ceramics, beautiful jewellery from Hannah Louise Lamb, gorgeous ceramics by Gavin Burnett, and equally gorgeous glass by Nicola Cairns.
