A celebration of the visual arts taking place in galleries homes studios and other venues throughout Pittenweem
August 5 – 13
The Pittenweem Arts Festival celebrates its 35th year in 2017 with three invited artists: sailor Graham Rich carves his iconic boat symbol into wooden remnants of maritime life, conjuring up the evocative power of the sea; Anna S. King returns after a nine-year absence with her sculptural weaving and textiles; and Paul Furneaux demonstrates the Japanese watercolour woodblock printing technique of mokuhanga. The papers are wrapped around wooden wall forms in an inter-play of shape and colour. In addition over 100 other artists will be exhibiting, giving talks and holding workshops throughout the picturesque coastal village in venues varying from houses and halls to net lofts, harbour offices and a vast industrial building.
