This Bank Holiday weekend why not absorb a little bit of the local talent on show as part of the Angus Open Studios festival.

Over 60 artists from around Angus will be opening up their studios to the public and putting on exhibitions of their work from today (Thursday) right through to Monday.

The exhibitions are free to enter and the artwork on display is also for sale, with many of the artists available to do commissions on request.

Arbroath ceramicist Fran Marquis held a special opening event in her home at 4 Springfield Terrace last night (Wednesday) to mark the event.

Exhibiting at that address alongside her are painter Val Fraser, sculptress Grace McLean, ceramicist Robert Walker and Gemma Teviotdale who specialises in textiles and jewellery.

Fran and fellow artist John Stoa will also be exhibiting their work at the Old Ladyloan School, Arbroath, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. as part of Angus Open Studios.
