The Castle Gallery in Rothesay will host an exhibition of work by aviation artist Dugald Cameron between September 20 and October 4, 2014.

An exhibition of work by aviation artist Dugald Cameron OBE will open at a gallery in Rothesay next weekend.

The exhibition of Mr Cameron’s work, at the Castle Gallery in the town’s High Street, opens on Saturday, September 20 - the day of the fifth annual Baird of Bute Festival - and represents a visual celebration of some of the revolutionary developments in the world of aviation, from the 1780s to the present day.

Mr Cameron, who won the Baird of Bute Society’s 2013 Scottish Aviation Award, is a well-respected Scottish artist, designer and educator, having enrolled as a student at the Glasgow School of Art in 1957 and progressed to become its head of industrial design in 1970, its head of design in 1982 and its director in 1991.

In addition to the exhibition, the gallery will also be selling an open edition of prints by Mr Cameron of the elevation study of the GSA’s Mackintosh Building, with all the proceeds being donated to the building’s restoration following the devastating fire in May of this year.

The exhibition and sale runs until Saturday, October 4.
