A NEW exhibition showcasing Fife’s wealth of creative talent has opened at Maisie and Mac in Cupar.

The gallery features the work of four artists, each with a very distinctive style.

They include Dawn Maciocia, who is starting out as an exhibiting artist, who uses painted papers, wrappers and pages of newspaper and magazines to create collages that are colourful and quirky.

Then there is Alison Midson, who has worked as a professional artist for some time.

Having left her job in the NHS to concentrate full-time on developing her artwork, she is introducing some collage elements and a more abstract approach to her paintings, which are based on the fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife and coastal scenes from the west coast of Scotland.

Marie Louise Wrightson has exhibited widely and regularly in Scotland and in London since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art with a Masters’ degree in 2005.

Her work in this exhibition represents her fascination with the story of Alice in Wonderland.

Finally, Steve Wrightson’s expert handling of glass tile and mixed media mosaic received a lot of attention when he exhibited at Maisie and Mac last year. Steve trained very locally – at Elmwood College - and he has exhibited extensively since.

The exhibition runs until August 25.
