Art and Heritage collections and a visitor from Jamaica

In early 2012 Dr Alan Barnett, a Consultant Anaesthetist Lecturer in Anaesthesia & Intensive Care at the University Hospital of the West Indies, returned to Aberdeen and visited the university to view examples of paintings created by his mother when she was a student at Gray’s in the 50s.

The paintings which are currently held in the University Art and Heritage collection are by his mother Catriona Campbell (1936-1972), wh0 graduated at Gray’s School of Art in 1957.

Artachat Event Fraserburgh Lighthouse Museum

The third and final Artachat event was held at Fraserburgh lighthouse museum on the 22nd of June.   It was an opportunity to learn of projects and people who have collaborated together in unusual, successful and or brilliantly unsuccessful etc ways. 

Artists / makers / traders / presented their activities in whatever form they wished… “talk, make, show and tell, laugh… dance”.

The idea was to explore how collaborating creates new conversations and activities in all kinds of areas and was the finale to a series of three Artachats commissioned by Robert Gordon University.
