Joan Eardley: A Sense of Place

Though it only spanned 15 years, Joan Eardley’s painting career was key in capturing life as she knew it in two contrasting Scottish locations: the slums of Townhead in Glasgow and the countryside of Catterline.

Previously unpublished sketches and photographs are displayed alongside well-known works of art to poignantly capture the all-too-brief career of one of Scotland’s most celebrated artists.

This exhibition comes highly recommended and is on until the 21st May 2017 at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, 73/75 Belford Road, Edinburgh, EH4 3DR.

Broadband upgrade for the Telephone Exchange

BT Openreach has just submitted a planning application to Aberdeenshire Council for the location of a new Broadband Cabinet at Roadside of Catterline adjacent to the exchange (Application 2016/2022). There is a statement submitted with the Application which explains that the new cabinet is part of the infrastructure required to upgrade Catterline exchange subscribers to high speed broadband. Hopefully events will move swiftly now.
