ARTISTS from the Wee County are featured in a charity exhibition in Larbert, already helping to raise nearly £10,000 for two good causes.

They are a part of a wider showcase by Central Arts Association at Torwood Garden Centre in the Falkirk town.

The display in the centre’s award-winning Blossoms Bistro & Coffee Shop is netting funds for Strathcarron Hospice as well as Macmillan Cancer Support Scotland with a whopping £9,837.90 raised by the time of writing.

Maggie Bowie, Louise Finlayson, Val Kenyon, Anne-Marie Marshall, Jennifer McGovern, Bobby Rennie and Margaret MacGregor are all local artists taking part with works hung at the café.

The hosts are also boosting the fundraising efforts.

The owners of Torwood Garden Centre Ltd, the Stevenson family, are very generously donating their full charge of 20 per cent commission on the purchase price of each painting to both charities.

On display at the exhibition are paintings, mosaics and photography, including Scottish beach scenes, landscapes, floral, wildlife, the Dunmore Pineapple building, Linlithgow Palace, woodlands and still lives.

Lovers of local art are being encouraged to head along, it is an opportunity to purchase a piece from artists in the Wee County and wider Forth Valley area, potentially as a gift to someone dear, while making a donation to the two good causes.

The exhibition at the centre, off Bellsdyke Road, can be viewed for free between 9am and 5pm on Mondays to Saturdays and 10am and 5pm on Sunday with access for the disabled and wheelchairs.
