An Arbroath artist has created a ‘sweet’ piece of art for an exhibition at this year’s Angus Open Studios festival taking place this week.

During this year’s celebration of Angus art the creative minds behind Arbroath art collective and pop-up gallery ‘Tentalicious’ will have their work on show in Dishlandtown Street.

One of the more curious pieces is by young artist Daisy Stott who has indulged her sweet tooth to create a life-size dress crafted from confectionary.

Daisy (17) has just been accepted for Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and is also the daughter of Tentalicious co-founder Jill Henderson.

‘Tentalicious’ will also seek to educate visitors about up-cycling and they will be encouraged to draw, paint or glue onto a sculpture of a robot which will go in display in Dundee later this year.

There will also be a range of contemporary canvases, limited edition prints, badges, pendants, trinket boxes, paper art and colourful mugs among others.

All of the pieces on display are examples of the work of the four artists behind Tentalicious, Jill Henderson, Suzanne Scott, Mhairi Scorgie and Daisy Stott.

The quartet will be hoping for a good turnout like last year. Jill said: “Last year’s Angus Open Studios event was extremely busy and we were lucky to have five of the sunniest days of the year!

“We hope to have the same sunshine this year and look forward to seeing lots of visitors come to what is becoming a really positive, creative event in the Angus area.”

Tentalicious will run 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Monday at 61 Dishlandtown Street, Arbroath. There will also be cake, coffee, tea and soft drinks on offer to visitors.
