The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

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


Words from the NEOS 2020 Chair Welcome to North East Open Studios 2020... This has been a year of ups and downs!

Fiona Duckett - Chairperson Illustration by Louise Lemmon @mrslemmonstudios

Let’s start with the amazing news – North East Open Studios is the recipient of a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) the highest honour a volunteer organisation can be given – the equivalent of an MBE. To say we are over the moon about this is understating how we have all felt. It is an amazing pat on the back to anyone who has volunteered to help make NEOS happen over the last 17 years. At the time of writing (June) I am unsure as to what shape the event that is NEOS 2020 will be scheduled to take place from the 12th – 20th September. As an organisation, we have taken one step at a time and will continue to do so. Thanks to Aberdeenshire Council’s Marie Archer, for coordinating a development with Business Gateway and ourselves – if we cannot open our studios in September many of

us will be more able to cope with a virtual NEOS (we hope!). I’ve been in NEOS since it started and in many ways this year has felt very like the first year – full of hope and expectation but with no idea what the outcome will be. We hope you will be reading this in a real book, but it might be virtual, we hope you can come and visit us in person, but it also might have to be virtual experience or something in between. What we do know is that there are still some amazing creatives working away all over the North East and we really do want to shine a spotlight on that creativity, if it is at all possible. Stay safe everyone and enjoy the North East Open Studios that the present unusual circumstances allow us to make for you. Fiona Duckett Chair

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/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.

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. Our Open Studios event has always been a cooperative of the creative talent in the North East, run by Artists and Makers for the benefit of each other. A debt of gratitude, for its continuing

success, is owed to all of the committee members, both past and present. 17 years on, NEOS is now firmly on the events calendar and continues to flourish every year, although due to Covid-19 this year has been a challenge. 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 artisans is the driving force behind NEOS, and in a normal year

we would be encouraging hands on events. However this year we will be really happy if you can all come and visit, but ‘hands on events’ may yet still be possible – please see members social Media feeds. This year our numbers are down (due to Covid-19) but there are still nearly 200 people taking part. So, we hope that you will 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

Volunteers needed! North East Open Studios is a collective run on a voluntary basis by a dedicated team, so would you like to get involved? We hold regular meetings throughout the year – usually on a Sunday, but they’ve moved this year to a Zoom meeting on a Monday night! If you feel you have ideas to share or would enjoy being part of the enthusiastic team that put the event together then we would love to hear

from you. You can contact Fiona at chair@northeastopenstudios.co.uk for more information, or speak to any of the committee or come to our AGM on Sunday 11th October (provisional date) and help keep NEOS vibrant. More people on the team means that we can help spread the load and the greater diversity of disciplines the wider the knowledge base – looking forward to hearing from you.

Covid-19 and North East Open Studios The advice for what is appropriate for keeping everyone safe in the current pandemic changes all the time.

Our members will also be kept informed of all the things they need to do to keep themselves and you safe.

There will be a dedicated page on the Website under the tab NEOS 2020 where you can access the most up to date information that is available to us.

Fingers crossed that we can have a physical ‘social distancing’ North East Open Studios.

Trips abroad have been the inspiration for most of my work this year. The colourful street cafes of Bologna, the dramatic waterscape of the Grand Canal and the soft light of Cordoba. I work in acrylic on canvas but I also use collage in woodland scenes from closer to home. Colour, texture and pattern are what I enjoy.

This year, I have been focussing on making traditional leaded panels and experimenting with glass fusing. A warm welcome awaits you in my new studio (upstairs from Bennachie Crafts). .

I paint still life, portrait and landscape subjects (urban and rural) in oil and acrylic on canvas. I like to travel to Mediterranean/equatorial locations where the light is intense and the colours are vibrant. Rio de Janeiro has provided inspiration for brightly coloured favela (slum) paintings. Influenced by: Scottish Colourists/Fauves. Eagle House is a WASPS studio situated a short distance from the Castle Gate. From the Castle Gate go down Marischal Street and turn left onto Regent Quay and immediate left again into Shore Lane.

Old Mill Steading Ury Estate Stonehaven AB39 3ST

07584 133 011 mail@francisboag.com www.boagart.com

I have been painting the area around my home near Stonehaven for more than 30 years. I try to interpret the world I see every day in a very personal way, and I have been fortunate to have found a means of expressing my response to what I see in a way which many others seem happy to share. The best way into the Ury Estate at the moment is via the Slug road. Follow signs for Banchory B957. As you leave Stonehaven, after about a mile, on your right is a sign saying ‘FM Ury Estate;Blue Lodge’. That is the entrance to the Estate, now follow NEOS signs. Sat

I mainly use stoneware clay and an electric kiln, inspiration for decoration is often taken from the coastal and surrounding Angus landscapes. Access is direct from the High Street through a black wrought iron gate, which will be unlocked during NEOS. At the end of the close proceed straight ahead through the wooden door and down the path for a further 30 m, this leads you along a gravel path, past a hedge to the open wooden gate on your right where you’ll find my little studio.

Birds, landscape and flowers are my main inspiration and much of my work reflects the local area, especially Newburgh. I paint mainly from my own photographs in acrylic, occasionally en plein air. I am keen to try and convey the character I see in birds, the light and colour in landscape and the shapes and tones of flowers. From Aberdeen follow A90 North towards Balmedie. Take a left onto the B977 marked Belhelvie. On entering Belhelvie take the road on your right marked Minnes/Bowling Green. The Sanctuary road is 0.6 miles along this road on your left.

I love working with glass, the way the light catches the colours and changes them depending on the source means there is always something new to see in a piece. Because I work with coloured glass my pieces do not fade and can be placed inside or outside and can bring a sparkle to any window or garden. Based in the centre of the village of Dallas - Look out for the yellow NEOS signs as we are down a wee alleyway o the main road.

NEOS would not be here without you and you have all helped to create and sustain Scotland’s largest Open Studios event. So that’s a huge thumbs up from your present committee! Thank you!

Would you like to make a difference to the creative community in the NE? We are down to 10 of a committee, from twenty 4 years ago. Our Treasurer Alun Dyson is stepping down this year after 4 years of sterling service to NEOS – thank you Alun. We need more people to join the committee. The more people on the committee the less each individual has to do – the greater the diversity of disciplines the better for the future of NEOS. If you feel you could make a difference, please get in touch or better still attend the AGM on Sunday 11th October. It might be virtual or real we don’t know yet – but we hope to see you there! Thank you.

The marks and detritus that oceans and people leave behind, act as design sources. I often use found items in my work making textile birds, figures, dolls, book covers, pictures and assemblages. Once on Jesmond Drive, pass Asda and Old Machar Academy on your right. Continue over brow of hill turn then turn left into Lee Crescent after the bus stop.

The pottery is in the old church on the right opposite the Seafield Arms. Coming from Banff into the village on the B9038 at the t- junction turn left and then turn first right into Chapel Street, the pottery is opposite the pub. Sat

It is my way of connecting with the non human species with which we share this planet and to the many varied landscapes and habitats we all rely upon. This process of quiet observation and reverence is life changing. It is literally eye opening, a treasury of wonder and amazement. From the east on A93, entrance to the Milton of Crathes is 100 meters past the Crathes Castle gates, on the left. From the west on A93, 2.5 miles from centre of Banchory, entrance is 100 meters before Crathes Castle gates, on the right. Well signposted from road.
