A GRADUATING Alloa artist is inviting residents in the Wee County to attend her degree show in Stirling.

Chelsie Dysart, along with fellow fourth-year art and design students from Forth Valley College, are holding their exhibition at the Engine Shed in Stirling with the opening taking place tomorrow.

She said: “It’s great to have the exhibition to enjoy with my peers and to show off all our work over the course of the degree.

“However it is also sad, thinking that myself and my peers won’t be together anymore, and also losing the close contact with working alongside the lecturers at Forth Valley College.

“I am, however, excited about starting my next journey after this and breaking into the world as an artist, motivating myself instead of working towards course work.”

Altogether, there will be nine artists exhibiting and Chelsie described her work as an audience participation piece.

Her setup includes a Polaroid camera with the public invited to take a selfie “ in the form of self-validation to eliminate the gaze and beauty expectations”.

The display at the Engine Shed, Forthside Way, will start at 4pm and is open until 7pm.

The pieces will remain on show until Thursday, January 18, each day between 10am and 1pm except Sunday, January 14, when it will be closed.

Exhibiting are Dawn Bates, David Niven, Wendy Shields, Mary Herriot Dunlop, Rhona Macleod, Sandra Morris, Rossita Bateman, Kelsi Strang and Chelsie Dysart.
