Mother and daughter artists, Lix and Lizzie Alderdice are the last exhibitors of the year to feature at Arcaro Arts in Peterhead.

The duo, from Drumwhindle near Ellon, welcomed keen art enthusiasts to Arcaro Arts last weekend, when they displayed their artwork to an appreciative audience.

Liz created photography-based art and describes herself as a ‘creative practitioner’ who teaches creativity as well as taking pictures.

She has exhibited on several occasions across the north-east and is a regular at the annual NEOS (North East Open Studios) event.

Lizzie meanwhile, creates sculpture and pyrography pieces as well as illustration.

The self-taught 22 year-old has already sold a number of artworks and hopes that her work will be well received by the folk of Peterhead.

Shop owner, Melissa Arcaro, spotted Lizzie while she was exhibiting at NEOS.

“Melissa saw my stuff in NEOS and called me and asked if I would like to exhibit some pieces at her studios in Peterhead,” she said.

Commenting on the successful season of exhibits, Melissa told us: “This is the last exhibitor and now we will be selling all the artworks of all the participating artists, while there will also be craft and art materials for sale. The second week in December will be a week of Inspire the Shire workshops which will be a collection of workshops for all ages and abilities,” added Melissa.
