Every year Moray Art Centre comes together with the Lossiemouth festival team at Seafest to put on a free competition open to all in our local community. Our project gives a chance to anyone to be our Artist of the Year!
All amateur artists are given the opportunity to paint the view from the Lossiemouth Esplanade during Seafest with materials donated by MAC and Seafest. Local professional artist Rob Whigham spends time with each participant to advise and encourage while MAC’s regular tutors Celia Forestal Smith and Kenneth Le Riche have the hard job of choosing the winners for all our competition categories.
It is such a wonderful way to bring art to people’s doorstep and in such a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
Not only do competition winners receive prizes but all participants are invited to exhibit their pieces in Moray Art Centre’s Community Gallery after Seafest has wrapped.
Art is for all – we give you the tools, you bring the ideas and Lossiemouth provides the inspiration!
