Chapel House Arts is a new arts complex featuring a Fine Art gallery and working studios for David Fallows (Spirit of the Cairngorms) and Anne Bridgen's fused glass work (Fused and Light). We plan to hold a series of art and craft workshops too focussing particularly on glass work but encompassing all disciplines. We will host changing exhibitions every two months or so, with a mix of local artists and those from further afield. Anne has particular interest in landscape and mountain art and also Christian art so there will be quite a variety during the year! We also exhibit a range of locally produced craft work including jewellery, ceramics, Harris tweed and wood. The gallery name reverts to an old name for the building when it was associated with the Catholic church in Kingussie. But many of you will know the building better as the former planning office!
OUR CURRENT EXHIBITION FEATURES JAMES GORDON'S PHOTOGRAPHS, THE WINTER WATERCOLOURS OF DAVID FALLOWS AND WORK BY MIRIAM SMITH, TOGETHER WITH SOME WORK BY ANNE BRIDGEN, ANN VASTANO AND DOUGLAS SPALDING.
Anne enjoys many different forms of art but over the past eight years has concentrated on working with fused glass. This is a technique she began in Northern Ireland at the Flowerfield centre in Portstewart shortly after completing an art foundation course, UUCertHE in Fine and Applied Art, in 2007. On moving to the Cairngorms National Park in 2010 she found no local glass kiln so bought her own and started selling her work commercially from then.
Her work is bright and colourful, rather than subtle! It encompasses jewellery, coasters, bowls and wall hangings, and she also welcomes commissions.
David has a working open studio in Chapel House Arts . David paints in Oils, Watercolours and Pastels as well as some mixed media work. He is the current chair of the Society of Badenoch & Strathspey Artists. He is also a Board Member of the Cairngorms National Park Authority.
David is driven by the vibrancy of colour to be found in the landscape, both in Scotland and throughout the world.
He sold his first painting at the age of twelve and has been painting ever since, exhibiting in various locations.
He welcomes commissions and is normally available to discuss.
