Artists from Saltcoats and West Klbride are featured prominently at the not-to-be-missed Open Studios exhibition ‘A Sense of Place’ at MacLaurin Galleries, Rozelle, Ayr, which runs until April 27.

Visitors to the opening event on Saturday were wowed by the colour and vibrancy of the work, which also features textiles and prints by West Kilbride maker, Karen Teal and Saltcoats jewellery maker, Susan Montgomerie.

Founded in 2012 by the artists themselves, Open Studio Ayrshire artists and makers are from a wide range of disciplines, including print-making, painting, sculpture, glass, jewellery and more.
