Art Exhibitions return to Elgin Library
In line with current Coronavirus restrictions, Moray Libraries are set to recommence hosting art exhibitions at Elgin Library Gallery from July this year.
With all Moray Libraries having returned to full opening hours, Moray Council is re-introducing the creative and artistic sectors that can be offered and enjoyed across Moray.
Kicking things off, art lovers can attend a two week exhibition of works by local artist Vincent Butler from Saturday 10 July during library opening hours.
Vincent Butler (Vince) was born in London just after the Second World War where he was encouraged to paint by one of his art teachers. After an apprenticeship as a sign-writer he began painting pictorials for pubs from a studio in South London. At this time Vince also secured his pilot’s and flying instructor’s licences. He went on to join the RAF reserve and became an instructor being posted to various Scottish bases and eventually decided to relocate to Scotland. Now that he has retired he simply enjoys painting.
Social distancing, the wearing of face-coverings and other mitigation measures will still apply when entering Elgin Library, where the experience of being able to appreciate art work again will be welcomed.
