THE Green Gallery in Dollar is to mark its first birthday with some fascinating exhibitions throughout June.

There will also be a night of fun this Friday, with cake and fizz, to toast the anniversary of the venue opening last year.

Becky Walker, from Green Gallery, said: "We are celebrating our first birthday in Dollar during the month of June when we are delighted to be showcasing former Dollar pupil and well-known Scottish artist Nichol Wheatley.

"Nichol is a bit of a conundrum. Having run a commercial fine art studio in Glasgow for fourteen years working with Alasdair Gray, Timorous Beasties and a host of other famous names, he only had his first solo show last November.

"Suffice to say it was a complete sell-out.

"Having recently returned to Kinross-shire, he is fascinated by the landscapes of his childhood, in particular his obsession with clouds.

"Nichol's work will be on show from 2nd June until 2nd July and all works will be on our website."

The gallery will also feature work from other gallery artists, including Poppy Cyster's "wonderful" sparse Fife landscapes, as well as a selection of glass, ceramics and jewellery.
