Fife may have had a taste of Arctic weather of late, but that hasn’t stopped the artists and participants in 2 of the 3 Fife Coastal Path residency projects from getting out and about to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
Having been postponed once because of the weather, there was no way those involved with artist Alan Grieve in his ‘Postcards from the Edge of Fife’ project were going to miss their outdoor tea party on St Andrews’ West Sands yet again! Suitably kitted out, the hardy souls launched their book with an elegant tea party courtesy of project co-ordinator Babs McCool (with famous Sair Heid cakes and tea!) and flung their messages in bottles out into the cold sea. Details of the publication will be available very shortly on FCA&C’s website, but here are a couple of ‘launch’ pics!
In slightly warmer surroundings – the Steeple arts venue in Newburgh to be precise – the third project came to fruition with a screening of the film made by participants and artist Tracey McConnell-Wood. Entitled ‘Five Fife Beaches’, this is a lovely film, part animation, of what you can see on and above the beaches. It’s now uploaded to FCA&C’s YouTube channel and is definitely worth a peak (only lasts 5 mins or so).
All the projects received funding from Fife Council’s Celebrating Fife 2010.
