ST ANDREWS Museum is the only venue on Scotland to be showcasting a new exhibition of work by Chinese artist Chen Hangfeng.

‘Unnatural Selection’, which opens tomorrow (Saturday) and runs until November 11, is an exiting mix of art using traditional and contemporary media.

It has been brought to the museum by the Fife Contemporary Art and Craft group.

Accompanying activities include a paper cutting workshop wirh Tonia Lu on Thurday, October 11 from 11am-1pm. The workshop is based on Chen’s intricate paper-cuts, which are themselves inspired by the ancient Chinese tradition of paper-cutting.

On Wednesday, October 17 from 11am-1pm Wormit artist Jean Duncan will hold a painting and drawing workshop for eight to 12-year-olds.

Jean intends to create a plant for the future using charcoal and watercolour, inspired by the plants depicted in Chen’s installation.

To book either of the workshops contact St Andrews Museum, tel. 01334 659380 or email standrews.museum@fi fe.gov.uk.

Free art-based activities for children based on the exhibitionwill also be available in the museum’s activity room.
