St Andrews Art Club member Anne Dunlop is one of a trio of artists proving that not all roads lead to Pittenweem when it comes to summer arts.

The seaside town of Elie is also, in its own small way, emerging as a new centre for art in the East Neuk

A few galleries are popping up and some artists, like Anne, have started exhibiting from their own homes.

However, there is no official brochure showing the artists’ locations in Elie but most are easy to find.

While Anne is well known locally, the two other artists have much higher profiles.

Jennifer Thomson will be exhibiting new paintings from the East Neuk and her travels round Europe in her unmistakable colourful figurative style at the Old Post Office Gallery on Links Place from July 27 to August 10, She will also be signing copies of her new book of paintings and artist’s notes called ‘Happy Days in the East Neuk & St Andrews’.

Contemporary landscape painter Robert Innes, whose colour-soaked works are a celebration of life, is exhibiting at ‘Wayside’, 40 High Street.

Anne’s work is showing at her home ‘Roseville’, opposite the Post Office on Links Place.
