Thousands again made the pilgrimage to the East Neuk for the arts and culture extravaganza that is the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival.

It is estimated the Pittenweem Arts Festival attracts about 25,000 visitors each year, who come over nine days to take in the wide variety of exhibitions, workshops, performances, talks and children’s events - and, of course, delight in Pittenweem’s historic wynds and getting a once-a-year glimpse into homes and gardens normally hidden away.

More than 110 artists took part this year in 89 venues and the festival had its usual mix of well-established invited creators, newcomers and resident artists, who exhibited in homes, studios, galleries and public spaces.

One of the highlights this year was an exhibition of work by the late Steven Campbell, whose intense large-scale surreal pieces never fail to prompt a reaction. An additional insight into his work came from an interview with his widow Carol by BBC Radio Scotland’s Edi Stark at the festival.

Other invited artists this year included Sean Dooley, from Cellardyke, Marian Leven and Dugald McInnes.

The festival was also featured on STV News at Six.
