Events This Weekend in Glasgow, Perth & Aberdeen!

Cat Burton - Guardian Of The Forest

It’s a super busy week here in the studio preparing for not one, not two, but three amazing events across Scotland this coming weekend!

My work will be exhibited and on sale in Glasgow, Perth & Aberdeen and I hope you’ll be able to visit! For an idea of what works will be on display, check out the video below:

GLASGOW (Friday to Sunday)

Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair

Print this out and bring to the show for complimentary entry for 2 adults. Click the image for the full size print-ready version.

Friday 17th May to Sunday 19th May at Kelvingrove.

I will have all 24 of the artworks in my Fine Art Collection available framed (just one of each!) and 1-2 unframed limited editions too. I’m excited to be showing my works so far from 2019 for the first time and have a couple of them available as stunning 30×20 inch framed aluminium limited editions at the show!

See my blog post or the GCAF website for further details & opening hours.

If you would like to attend on Saturday or Sunday, you can use the below flyer to get free entry. Simply print it out and bring it along.

PERTH (Thursday to Sunday)

ArTay Exhibition (curated by Frames Gallery)

Thursday 16 May to Sunday 19 May in the marquee outside Perth Concert Hall and Perth Museum.

This free exhibition displays hundreds of works by local emerging and established artists. It’s a great opportunity to see works of all types and see how much creativity there is in Perthshire! I will have 6 artworks exhibited at the event from my 2016-2017 collection.

For more details see my blog post about the event or check out their Facebook event.

ABERDEEN (Saturday)

Charity Art Exhibition in aid of Charlie House

Saturday 18th May at The Chester Hotel, Aberdeen

2pm-5pm: Open to public (discretionary charity donation at the door)

Over 50 local and acclaimed artists have donated artworks for this charity exhibition & auction at this event in Aberdeen.

Two of my aluminium limited editions will be exhibited and on sale at the event. Each priced at £995, 50% of proceeds go to the charity – meaning if my works both sell, that’s a grand for a very worthy cause!

For further details check out my blog post about the event.

April 2019 Newsletter – New Products on Redbubble, Spring Workshops & Upcoming Events

Cat Burton - The Gathering

Wow, what a month March was! I have so many things to share with you!

I’ve decided that going forward I’ll be blogging my newsletters so that it’s easier for you to find and read them.

I’ll still be sending out the contents as a monthly email to my newsletter list, so if you’d like to receive those, you can sign up here.

Ok, onwards with all the news!

New Products!

I’ve been a busy bee researching how best to give my customers the products they’re requesting. After a successful winter trial, I’m delighted to announce that I’ve added my full Fine Art Collection to my Redbubble.com store.

There you will find a wide variety of print products, homewares such as cushions and mugs, posters, tote bags (my personal favourite) and much more.

To browse the available products, simply head over to my Prints, Gifts and Homewares page.

New Workshops

Due to popular demand, I’ve created some new 2 hour workshops in Perth (Scotland) which are focused on specific topics. These are available throughout the year and once purchased can be scheduled for a mutually convenient date.

Full details can be found on the Workshops page.

The Photography Show 2019

I had an amazing time at The Photography Show this year. I worked with ChromaLuxe this year and provided imagery for their stand. It looked brilliant. Thank you to everyone who visited the stand to see my work.

I wrote a full review of the show here with my favourite finds, including GamerGram, Vallerret Gloves and more.

Spring is the time for pretty flowers, creepy critters and fuzzy beasties – the perfect time for macro!
