DUFFTOWN (SCOTLAND) - Since its inception in 2002 our programme has seen The Glenfiddich Distillery play host to one hundred and twenty artists from around the globe. Each artist spends three months in residence to be inspired by the unique environment Glenfiddich offers.
Imagination and reality are brought together in the skilfully executed drawings of Korean artist Min Joon Park whose thoughtful observations of life at Glenfiddich have been captured in a number of delicate pencil and ink works and bound together in to a series of dream like illustrations heavily influenced by his appreciation of great artists such as Di Vinci.
For Emily Binks, the second resident artist to be selected through Glenfiddich’s collaboration with the New Contemporaries Exhibition the past weeks have been spent collecting unwanted sofas to be brought together into a sculptural installation inspired by mountain bothies and rudimentary shelters.

Finally Ross and Binks have also come together to create a collaborative work celebrating their combined love of Hi Vis Fluoro colours, with an external installation that is inspired by the scarecrows they have observed protecting the highlands.
A private view will be held on the evening of Friday 26th August. The exhibition is then open to the public from Saturday 27th August until Sunday 18th September.
The gallery is open each day apart from Mondays and Tuesdays from 12.30 till 5.30 pm. - Admission is free
