1st – 23rd November
In the beautiful setting of Lochgilphead, in the scenic Argyll and Bute district in the Scottish Highlands, The Archway Gallery is hosting an exhibition by artist Lex McFadyen.
Lex graduated from the Glasgow School of Art with an Honours degree in Fine Art, and after a successful career as fashion designer, returned to painting and drawing, gaining a growing following of collectors of his strong portraits, sculptures and still lifes.
Awarded the PF Charitable Trust Award, the major prize at the Visual Arts Scotland Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy, Lex’s reputation continues to grow – he produced the life size ‘Angel’ statue for Angel with Bagpipes on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, and one of his paintings is in the private collection of The Princess Royal.
He lives on the Crinan Canal in Argyll, and in Burgundy, France where he curates the annual Dix Artistes Ecossais exhibition, his work increasingly influenced by the long periods he spends there.
