Exhibition : My Dunfermline
My Dunfermline is an exhibition influenced by Vic MacRae and Alan Grieve’s personal reflections on the places that are important or significant to them in the town they live. Alan is born and bred in Dunfermline, whilst Vic is new to the area having moved here with her family in 2015.
Vic’s take on Dunfermline is influenced by her six year old daughter (Iris), and the places they like to go to together. They are frequent visitors to the public Park where Vic takes part in a weekly exercise session in the Bandstand and Iris enjoys playing in the rather careworn play park. The underpass in the public park is a favourite haunt with its steep sides to run up and slide down, ripped trousers are an inevitable hazard! With a new kitten in the family Vic and Iris often visit Pets at Home, both to pick up supplies and have a look at the rabbits and guinea pigs. As the nearest shop to home, they often pop into Aldi together to pick up messages.
These places are all illustrated in Vic’s artwork that is drawn with fineliner pens that then are scanned and coloured digitally. Prints will be for sale on the evening.
Alan will be showing a selection of drawings he creates for the Visit Dunfermline Facebook page.
All drawings are available as prints for purchase.
