The Castle Gallery
The Castle Gallery
I have been painting for some twenty five years, working for many galleries and making strong bonds with fellow artists and gallery owners.
I feel privileged and fulfilled on this journey taken.
I worked from my gallery in Langholm, Dumfriesshire for many years taking part in the region’s Spring Fling Event (open studios).
I exhibited widely in the region and also in Cumbria. My first love was to exhibit in the Artists’ Town of Kirkcudbright where I exhibited in the High Street Gallery and have had numerous solo exhibitions at the Tolbooth Gallery. It was a joy to meet people there and to talk about and demonstrate the art of pastel painting to enthusiasts.
I relocated to Bute where I continue to paint. I live in the beautiful village of Kilchattan and have a wee cottage on the beach which is a constant source of inspiration!
I love the flow of natural patterns whether it be in wave ,sand, rock or sky. I work my pastels layer upon later building pattern, texture and colour with each application, creating movement and natural flowing shape as I go!
I have tutored for many years both in Dumfriesshire and Bute. My group met every week at Mount Stuart and my ladies produced some fine work at a grand exhibition there. One to remember! I was so pleased for them.
I love painting and people. My partner David helps me with a wee bit of promotion. He has produced a face book page for me “Anne Donald Artist”. It will give you some insight into my painting and work.
I currently exhibit at the Seagull Gallery, Gourock- The Stable Gallery, Inverary - The Juno Gallery, Dunoon- and have been invited back to the Tolbooth, Kirkcudbright.
I am delighted to return to The Castle Gallery and it feels so special to represent your own island!
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I hope that I can inspire you.
