Aberdeen Art Fair 2016

 organisers of this weekend’s 6th aberdeen art fair, which is being staged in the city’s beach ballroom for the first time, have announced that well known scottish artist alexander millar will be appearing at the friday preview evening, in a special ‘alexander millar focused area’ at the breeze stand! 

alexander has created a brand new collection for the event! inconjuction with breeze gallery, he is donating an original pencil sketch to the AAF’s charity partner, the ARCHIE foundation. this will form part of a silent auction taking place throughout the weekend! 

alexander, who was born in ayrshire, reveals that it was early life experiences that shaped his painting style. “my formative years were spent in the company of old men dressed in dark suits smoking woodbines partnered with large missile-shaped women decked out in headscarves and pinnies. my father worked for british rail and I got great pleasure from simply sitting in the atmospheric steam filled stations which even today I find are the most romantic, nostalgic places to be. 

“many of my most romantic paintings are set within that very atmosphere – I guess I’m just a big old fashioned nostalgic romantic at heart! It therefore comes as no surprise to many that my favourite film is ‘the quiet man’.” 

there will also be a cafe within the building serving a range of refreshments... we look forward seeing you there!
