At the 'art of the village - MAYFEST 2013 ART EXHIBITIONThe Mayfest art exhibition was, once again, very successful at Milton of Campsie Village Hall. Organisers were delighted to welcome Strathkelvin and Bearsden MSP Fiona McLeod, who opened the exhibition. There were more attendees than ever this year. Milton of Campsie Art Club sold 17 per cent of the pictures on display. The excellent craftwork also sold well. George Smith won the art club’s prize for pictures gaining the most votes from the viewers. It was part of the annual feast of culture, music and more in Milton of Campsie. The opening of the exhibition is pictured below.
Our thanks go to Kirkintilloch Herald newspaper for the excellent photos.MAYFEST DELIGHT 2013The Village Hall Trust and the Mayfest organisers wish to thank all those who made the Mayfest such a success this year. It would not have been possible without the helpers who gave their time in providing refreshments, assistance with setting up, etc. As always the 50 performers – providing pop, classical-baroque, folk, jazz, etc. – gave a great choice and, apart from the Celtic music night (with some astounding music), the hall was full and the audiences very enthusiastic about what they heard and saw. In particular, the young musicians and dancers were very well received by a very large audience. The art workshops – silk-painting and for children – were well attended and enjoyed. Finally East Dunbartonsire Arts Council and G66+Live must be thanked for their essential support. Some of the young folk are pictured below.
(Thanks go to East Dunbartonshire Arts Council for financial support towards this project, also to Zak David Hughen and Cheryl Gilbert for their photography, and to George Smith for design and setup of electronic files)
