Jack Vettriano: Limited edition Giclee prints
Our exhibition of limited edition Jack Vettriano Giclee prints at Tweeddale Museum and Gallery has got off to a great start, with people queuing out the door before opening hours on Saturday!
Our exhibition features Giclee print works, a fine art digital process combining pigment based inks with high quality paper to achieve prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability, perfectly suited to Vettriano’s vibrant style. Phoebe Stewart, our Assistant Curator at Tweeddale Museum and Gallery, has been working tirelessly behind the scenes with her team to make sure the exhibition runs smoothly. She believes ‘this is an extraordinary collection and I hope visitors will enjoy the broad range of works we have on display in the gallery.’ We think they will!
Jack Vettriano was born in Fife in 1951 and began painting at the age of 21. Since then his paintings have achieved worldwide acclaim and he is now one of the best-loved contemporary painters in Scotland and the world. Vettriano’s work is romantic and timeless with a nostalgic, cinematic quality. He hints at narratives; setting the scene whilst leaving the viewer to imagine the storyline yet to unfold.
The exhibition is also part of the Creative Peebles Festival’s ‘Open Galleries Evenings’ which starts later this month. We hope you’ll join us as part of this wonderful festival which sees galleries, studios workshops and retail outlets opening their doors in the evening to showcase the extraordinary wealth of visual arts and crafts created in and around Peebles.
As part of Creative Peebles Festival (Friday, August 24 – Sunday, September 2) additional showings will take place on Friday, August 24, 18:00-21:00; Saturday, August 25, Sunday, August 26, Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 22, 13:00-16:00.
The Vettriano exhibition runs from Saturday, August 4 – Saturday, November 24 within the normal opening hours of Tweeddale Museum and Gallery.
