First exhibition for art group

A NEW exhibition by a group of artists working out of the South Dalziel Studios in Motherwell opens on Saturday.

Titled ‘South Dalziel Showcase’ the exhibition at North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre, Motherwell, displays the talents of artist Yvonne Taylor, group tutor, and five of her students from the studios.

Some two dozen works, in acrylic mixed-media and watercolour are on show, all of which are for sale.

Yvonne, from Motherwell, said: “In 2009 I was working as a lecturer in art and design at Anniesland College in Glasgow, when I was asked if I would be interested in starting a local group in my home town.

“At the time the old South Dalziel Church was being transformed into a community space and I was delighted to be able to start classes with organisers at South Dalziel Studios”.

The free exhibition is in the community art space on the first floor, open 10am-5pm on Mondays to Saturdays until Saturday, December 8.
