2019 A year round guide to the artists & makers in the North East of Scotland


Words from the NEOS 2019 Chair Welcome to North East Open Studios 2019... Our sixteenth year, and nearly the largest one ever!

Fiona Duckett – Chairperson

I’ve been excited to be part of NEOS since it started. I’ve seen it grow and blossom. It’s a showcase for the amazingly rich and diverse artists and makers that reside in the North East of Scotland. We all thoroughly enjoy producing this fantastic event, which is running from the 14th to the 23rd September this year. Not all of our members are open every day, so please make the most of this little yellow book. It will provide you with everything you need to know about each entrant. Use it to explore new creative genres and enjoy the amazing privilege of getting a glimpse into our member’s ingenuity, often in their own workspace. Many of our members will have ‘hands on’ events, these will be highlighted on their social media channels. (Social Media channels

can be found on member’s individual online entries). We could of course open our studios and find that no-one comes to visit…. So you, our lovely visitors, deserve the biggest pat on the back. You have helped sustain and nourish the imaginative talent that is all over the North East, we thank you sincerely for this. We continue to say ‘we are all NEOS’ as we are a co-operative of artists and craft people who get together to deliver this event. Hundreds of hours are given voluntarily and without the dedicated band of people prepared to do this, North East Open Studios would not continue to flourish. So it’s a huge thank you to everyone who has helped make this event what it is both now (my committee) and in the past. Go and enjoy it, I know I will!

How to use this guide This book represents the work of all the members, who are self selecting each year. The delight of NEOS is that this ranges from nationally acclaimed artisans, to new creatives taking their first public steps. Simply browse the pages to see the wealth of artistic talent, or use the index to locate a specific artist or discipline. A pull out guide indicates the location of all the NEOS participants. For more detailed location guides, see the individual entrant or look at our website: www.northeastopenstudios.co.uk/neos-2019/directory

Please note: many of our members are open all year, the guide will tell you this. Please contact the individuals for their normal opening times.


NEOS 2019-Visitors’ Survey Ever since NEOS started we’ve encouraged visitors and participants to give us their feedback. In the early days, this was done by tearing out a page of the book and posting it back to us! Things have moved on since then, and we now ask you to give us your email so that we can email you a link to our online survey. This helps us gauge what we are doing right and also what we can do to improve North East Open Studios. The NEOS event as a whole is self funding i.e. the members fees

cover the basic costs, but we can also apply for external funding. By asking for your feedback, it allows us to provide facts and figures to justify our grant applications. Last year, our videos that advertised the event were paid for with a grant from Aberdeenshire Councils Creative Economies Grant Project. Your vital feedback meant we qualified for this, thank you.

the first selected completed survey £100 and £50 for the second.

To show our appreciation for your participation, we will be holding a Prize Draw again in 2019, for

Many thanks for your support.

artisans is the driving force behind NEOS, and many of our members are doing ‘hands on events’ now. These can be found on Social Media (another great way to engage with our members, unknown when NEOS was born).

No Personal Details will be kept or shared with any third party, you will be sent a link by email to the survey – if for some reason you don’t get the email then please visit our website www.northeastopenstudios.co.uk

in October where there will be a link to take you to the survey.

The History of NEOS North East Open Studios (NEOS) was established in 2003 by a small group of Artists and Makers. They realised that there was a vast collection of diverse, artistic talent in the North East of Scotland, which was virtually unknown to the general public. NEOS was given life and in its first year (2004) 67 different people took part. A visual history of the NEOS covers can be found on page 176. Our Open Studios event has always been a cooperative of the creative talent in the North East, run by

16 years on, NEOS is now firmly on the events calendar and continues to flourish every year. It provides networking opportunities, not only for the general public but also the Artists and Makers themselves. There have been many collaborations as a result. The opportunity to engage with our

This year we have 318 entrants in the NEOS Book. We hope you enjoy the wealth of inspiring and unique talent that is on your doorstep. A treasure trove of creativity waiting to be discovered by you. www.northeastopenstudios.co.uk

Christmas Pop-Up The eagle eyed among you will have already noticed that some or our members have a lovely snowflake, made up of our NEOS arrows, on their discipline banner. This is new for this year and somewhat of an experiment. The committee discovered that a number of members did ‘Pop Up’ events before Christmas and we felt it would be a good idea to advertise

this in the NEOS book. The Christmas Pop Up weekend is Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December. Our members only have to be open for one of those days to qualify for the snowflake, so if you are interested in going to the Christmas event then please contact the individual to

New for 2019 Social Media New clickable link When looking at our members’ online entries, you will see new Social Media links. If our members are on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you can click on the image for any of these Social Media platforms and you will be taken directly to that Member’s Social Media page.

AWPR

We have always produced our paper version of the map but this year there is an online version of the map as well. We hope this will help you plan your routes before you leave and might even be handy when you’re on the road! #neosroadtrip. NEOS welcomes feedback for any of our new ideas as we strive to keep on top of the ever changing world of online!

Well nothing to do with us but we do feel that the AWPR is going to transform your NEOS road trip and make it much easier to move from one area to another.

My working methods have strong connections with the Scottish folk furniture of the past and use simple time proven methods. By using hand tools and exploring the nature of the wood I try to create work that is both true to the material, yet new and exciting. As you turn off the B9007 onto the tarmac driveway to Logie Steading, the workshop is the first left. Look out for the “Aaron Sterritt Woodwork” roadside sign.

open all year? By Appointment

Original kiln cast and fused glass, combined with forged iron and carved wood. My work originates in the wonderful forms of nature and history seen in the North East of Scotland. I use the unique properties of the materials I favour to translate what I see into three dimensional works to express the every day wonders around us. On Beech Row, look for the tall beech hedge, blue iron gates and the NEOS sign! My studio is behind the house, just follow the signs. There are other artists displaying in the house itself, so please come in!

Vibrant colour, movement and light inspires my painting. I use watercolours, often on Yupo paper, which creates a fluidity and luminosity that I enjoy exploring. I will be busy painting and am happy to demonstrate my work. During NEOS, I share my location with Bramar Creative and Boughey Art, so you can visit all three of us! Beech Row (B9005) runs between the War Memorial and Fyvie Church. Beechrow Cottage has blue wrought iron gates with the house name on them.

The Old Granary Mill of Keig, Keig Alford AB33 8BJ

open all year? By Appointment

My work varies from vibrant and free flowing to calm and controlled. My tools range from tiny brushes to large palette knives. As an artist I am influenced by my surroundings. The process I adopt, and the materials I use, depend on what has inspired me and the result I want to achieve. I love the challenge of each new canvas. From the A944 Aberdeen to Alford road turn at Whitehouse (about 3 miles from Alford) towards Keig (signposted). After 3 miles,at Keig, turn right at the crossroads toward Insch. After 0.2 miles turn right onto Lords Throat. The Old Granary is on the right just after the small bridge.

Woodland Lodge 2 Mackenzie Drive, Daviot

My constant search of beauty is the driving force behind my art work: I am convinced that there is beauty in everything and I strive to bring it out and share it with the viewer. Inspired by the great artists of the past, I try to apply the classical approach to the more modern subjects. My focus is mainly on portraits and still life. Leave Inverurie on Rothienorman Road (B9001), go past 2 signs pointing to Daviot, then turn right at the sign “Daviot Estate”, onto Edinmore Drive. Following the main road take 2 more right turns, then a left one and at the sign “Mackenzie Drive” turn right again and continue downhill to the iron gate with the house name “Woodland Lodge”. Sat

17 Low Street Portsoy Banff AB45 2QQ

open all year? By Appointment

My work consists mainly of icons. Icons (from the Greek ‘eikon’=image) are an ancient form of sacred art, painted in a specific way and meant to carry a specific symbolism. This symbolic value extends to the traditional materials used as well. These are mostly gathered from nature and in the images produced, they transcend and elevate it. Towards Banff take the A98 to Portsoy and follow the signs to the 17th century harbour. 17 Low Street is just a short walk away.

Grampian Opportunities 07944877023 0607939@rgu.ac.uk 54 West High Street Inveruire facebook.com/NatalieNaylorCeramicArtist open all year? No AB51 3QR To be able to share what I do is such a joy. For my second time exhibiting with NEOS I’m staying true to my core interest of alternative firing processes, with Raku making up the main body of my work. Wood and textured tree bark is also a big inspiration; old tree trunks and the deep crevasses within interests me. Next door to Nickel and Dime. Grampian Opportunities is opposite Weatherspoons. There is ramp inside the building for wheelchair access.

Woodside of Melgum Melgum Road Tarland AB34 4UX

open all year? By Appointment

Having moved to Tarland in 2017 my painting has been influenced by the views from home. Morven and life in Cromar have become my motivation. My style has drifted from this to that. I will share a beautiful rustic steading studio (my home) with colleague artists as part of our village CreativeCromar group, and linked to the ChairArt Trail. Tarland is 6 miles north of Aboyne, 30 miles west of Aberdeen. Look out for the ChairArt Trail linking venues in Tarland. We are west through the Square passing the Aberdeen Arms, Angie’s Cafe and the Commercial Hotel on the right. Continue up Melgum Road for a mile. The steading is on your right next to the polytunnel.

open all year? By Appointment

I am inspired by nature, the weather, the seasons and a sense of place. Working primarily in oil paint I use colour and shape to create semi abstract paintings that explore issues such as quality of light, transience and change. Land and sea are often in my paintings, although I do not really describe myself as a landscape painter. From Forres High Street, turn right onto Tollbooth Street. Carry on down until right turn onto Fulton Road. Number 30 is on that corner

The fantastical, folklore, and Palaeolithic cave art inspire me. In fair weather, you may also find me prowling rocky beaches “hypnotising” rocks and balancing them with apparent disregard for gravity. I will be exhibiting illustrations, linocut prints, photographs of rock balances, and digital art prints. Come into Fordoun off the A90 and follow the sign for Auchenblae. Go over the railway bridge and in approximately 100 yards the hall is on the right before you get to Neptune’s building.

My pictures are recreations; graphic portrayals born of a desire to re-live - and hopefully share - a special moment, one of those of which you can say afterwards; “I knew I was truly alive”. Wandering our mountains, and working on the sea, I have been granted many such moments, real visions of vivid colour, or intense pencilled detail. Tarland is 6 miles north of Aboyne, 30 miles west of Aberdeen. Look out for the ChairArt Trail linking venues in Tarland.

Lemmon Studios 12 Trenchard Way Inverbervie DD10 0RF

open all year? By Appointment

As a designer I am inspired by clean lines and contrasting textures and I believe it shows in my jewellery which is classic with a modern twist. I like mixing textures and colours to make simple but impactful pieces. I’m delighted to be sharing studio space with Louise Lemmon at Lemmon Studios. South from Aberdeen - A90 southbound, turn off at A92 Montrose/Arbroath. Follow A92 to Inverbervie. Turn on to “Fairfield Road”, turn left onto “Trenchard Walk” and follow the road round to “Trenchard Way”. Continue to the bottom of the road where you will see my yellow signs.

My practice is about absorbing my surroundings: as I become more sensitive to it, I accumulate images and stories which I make impressions of in my work. Look forward to meeting you!

I am a painter. My work is mainly figurative. I enjoy the challenge of composition and by re-sketching and adjusting my emphasis, even sometimes abandoning an initial concept, I discover what I must paint. I find recreation and absorption in the act of painting and so always readily engage in the creative processes that proceed it.

No DD10 0HB I have painted my Way Through cancer, recovery and since NEOS 2018, Camino de Santiago de Compostela, from the Mearns of Scotland to Murcia in Spain. I have developed from an illustrative style in inks and watercolours to work in acrylics both towards greater realism of landscape and in the other direction to become more abstract. On coming down the hill into Johnshaven, turn left into the Square opposite the Anchor Hotel and wind your way along about 50 yards. The exhibition is in the small village hall on the right. Sat

History of NEOS

The history of NEOS covers 2004 - 2018 The North East Open Studios book has been designed by Philip Thompson since 2004. The first ever book had just 67 entrants. The design has evolved over the years, including the logo / brand identity, the format of the book and the layouts that display the entrants information. 29,000 copies of the catalogue have been printed by MMS Almac Print Ltd this year.

2004

2005

2006

First NEOS book, featuring 67 artists, makers & galleries from the North East of Scotland. The entrants were placed in seven “area maps” which create a lot of discussion once the event had passed. A “listings” section was also implemented but was discontinued the following years. A5 format.

The logo design, using Placard Condensed starts to form but missing the arrow. More art from entrants was used, with an emphasis on “things happen in the North East of Scotland”, combining history & contemporary art. There were 130 entrants in 2005 and the format remained A5.

The NEOS logo, featuring the Arrow, NEOS, “north east open studios” and year was finalised in 2006. Experimentation with the font-family “Vista” was incorporated along with the hand drawn illustrations by Philip. There were 141 entrants in 2006 and the final year of the A5 format.

2007 NEOS was featured on “North Tonight” (STV News for the north east of Scotland) when Emma Pattullo & Jane Frazer approached the news team and were then interviewed, showcasing some of the entries. The publicity was fantastic & visitors commented saying that they had heard of NEOS thanks to the news story.
