The work of a young professional Carnoustie artist is currently being exhibited at the Whitehills Health & Community Care Centre in Forfar.

Rachael Kibbler’s exhibition has something for everyone with a variety of original paintings using a mixture of subjects including botanics, life-drawing, landscapes, seascapes and boats.

A family affair, Rachael has had support from both her parents and works alongside her father, an artist and picture framer who has framed most of the paintings for the exhibition.

Rachael, a former Carnoustie High School pupil, gained a BA Honours in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and now paints full time in her studio within Barry Business Centre where she has recently started teaching art tuition on a one-to-one basis, available for all abilities.

She said: “I have been building up my ‘Reflection Series’ which is a group of contemporary paintings, some quite large, based on shop windows.

“I am currently showing six of these paintings in Edinburgh. I wanted to exhibit at Whitehills as I have heard great reviews from past exhibitors and love the idea of giving a bit back to the local community.”

The public exhibition, staged in the main corridor in the centre, will run until the end of March.

Artists donate 20 per cent commission to the Whitehills Arts & Environment Fund which enhances the Whitehills environment.

The gallery has provided space for many local artists to show their work and the public are invited to pop in and view this new exhibition.
