Pittenweem is usually associated with arts in the summer in the East Neuk but it is not the only destination for art-lovers.

In Elie, small galleries are popping up and some artists, echoing the successful formula used in Pittenweem, have even started exhibiting from their homes.

Unlike its near neighbour, however, there is no brochure showing the artists’ locations but most are still easy to find.

For example, well-known Scottish artist Jennifer Thomson will be exhibiting her new paintings from the East Neuk and her travels in Europe from July 27 until August 10 at the Old Post Office Gallery, where she will also be signing copies of her book of paintings and artist’s notes called ‘Happy Days in the East Neuk & St Andrews’.

Robert Innes, another highly respected Scottish artist whose contemporary landscapes are a colourful celebration of life, is showing at the same time from his home, ‘Wayside’, 40 High Street. Meanwhile local artist Anne Dunlop’s work can be seen at her home ‘Roseville’, opposite the Post Office on Links Place.
