PATIENTS, staff and visitors at Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre in Forfar are currently enjoying a new exhibition showcasing local beauty spots.

A selection of 25 art works by Arbroath artist Frank McDiarmid is providing an eye-catching welcome at the centre.

The exhibition provides a wonderful selection of water colours of Angus landscapes.

A selection of a seascapes share the gallery space with watercolours which features images of both Cyprus and Capri.

Frank originally trained as a cartoonist with Dundee newspaper publisher DC Thomson before moving on to develop his skills in fine art.

Frank opened his own gallery in Arbroath 20 years ago in 1993 and since retiring he has concentrated on exhibitions and commissions including on-the-spot caricatures at weddings, corporate and charity events.

Exhibitions at the Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre are changed every eight weeks with each artist donating 20 percent commission on all sales to the Whitehills Arts and Environment Fund.

All money raised is used to enhance the environment at Whitehills for patients, staff and visitors.

Situated in the main corridor the gallery provides an opportunity for artists and craft workers to display their work and has, over the years, enjoyed enthusiastic support from a selection of many local artists.

The Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre is open from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. and you can view Frank’s work during the opeining hours of the centre.
