Elizabeth Blackadder at the opening of her exhibition in Stirling University.

I reckon we are fast approaching a “tipping point” for the arts in central Scotland.
Instead of being caught in a cultural wilderness between Glasgow and Edinburgh we are beginning to establish our own identity with a vibrant art community.
Last Saturday saw the opening of the Elizabeth Blackadder exhibition in Stirling University to celebrate her 80th anniversary.
This followed on the previous weeks highly success Bridge of Allan Arts and Crafts Festival- first ever for the area-and we have two “pop-up” events scheduled – one is a weekend exhibition by two FVOS members, Libby Yule and Catherine Froy in West Mosside and the other is a “networking/music evening in the former Changing Room in Stirling Arcade.
Meanwhile my own work involves finishing off “Sully” a book about Wales and I am about to dip into electronic publishing.
