A NEW Scottish exhibition showcasing a collection of original works by renowned artist Jack Vettriano will open this week.
Some of the Fife-born artist’s well-known pieces will feature alongside a series of limited edition prints from throughout his career, including some of his earlier works.
Curated by gallery owner and collector, Mark Gask, the exhibition entitled ‘Jack Vettriano – a Scottish Artist’ will be held in Duff House, in Banff.
It will open to the public for 10 weeks on Saturday 25th July and is included within the admission price to the House.
Vettriano, who is from Methil in Fife, is entirely self-taught.
More than 132,502 people attended the first major retrospective of the artist’s work held Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery – a record for the museum.
Lorna Ewan from Historic Scotland said: “With his work being so famous in reproduction, I’m sure people will enjoy this opportunity to view a small sample of his work in the flesh.
“Drawn from a private collection, this could be the first time for many to see these originals and we are expecting it to be popular with visitors and fans alike.”
Mark Gask, Founder of Inverurie-based Gallery i, who loaned the paintings added: “Duff House is the perfect setting for this more intimate style exhibition, featuring a number of original art works by one of Scotland’s most famous contemporary artists.
“The exhibition will also see one of the originals – Future World – available to purchase, as are all of the limited edition prints.”
