SPRINGFEST 2019

The new Springfest event run in March by the club turned out very successfully. Both club members and guest artists' pictures were well-received by members of the public who came to view them. The music events proved very popular too and were well attended. Thanks to all club members and other local helpers whose efforts made such a big difference.

OCTOBERFEST 2018

In October we had the second of our two annual art festivals of 2018. The display of paintings was generally agreed to be the best the club has
ever shown. Well done to all members who had their work on the walls.
The musical events were well enjoyed by their audiences too, thanks to the skills and enthusiasm of all the musicians involved. Last but by no means least, thanks are due as always to the small army of helpers who contributed their time and did their bit. Here are some photos to give you a flavour of what was happening.

Campsie Art VIBE is a celebration of art and creativity across East Dunbartonshire and the Campsies. It runs from 6th to 12th August but 

most of the activities take place on Sat 11th/Sun 12th. The idea is to showcase the talent and creativity of local artists and provide 

opportunities for people to get involved and try something new. As well as some well known local artists opening up their own studios to 

the public where you can meet, chat and see them at work, there is also a pop-up shared studio day being hosted by MoC art club in MoC 

village hall and a Family Art Day at the Memorial Hall in Lennoxtown.


There will be a range of activities on offer at the Family Art Day from 1:30-4:30 on Sat 11th for adults as well as children. Come along and 

have a go at an acrylic pour, try silk painting or paint a ceramic. There will also be live music, storytelling for the little ones and a fabulous 

tearoom run by the hall committee.


The creative spaces pop up studio day on Sunday in Milton of Campsie also has plenty to offer with original artwork from local artists 

available and a range of tutorials and drop in activities. Still life painting with Maggie Sadullah, pastel tutorials with Lynn Howarth and 

upcycling with Selvedge Selvedge. 11am - 4pm Sunday 12th August (Some tutorials start at 10am)
