Exhibition during Scottish Golf Open
June 9, 2011

During the first Scottish Golf Open to be held at  Castle Stuart  in July 2011, Moray Art Centre is exhibiting 'Golf", an art book of the story of golf.   Limited edition art prints from the handmade, 18 chapter, 140 page masterpiece, plus copies of the 575 page Collector Edition (limited to 2100) will be on display and available at the exhibition.  'Golf' is an editorialised art collection that tells the story of the game, the terrain and where it's all going created by Wonderland Publications..

Moray Art Centre  is the only ecologically-built exhibition space in the North of Scotland and is designed to be a model of 100% energy sustainability. It is situated within an area of outstanding natural beauty that is rich in nature and provides a truly tranquil setting that is only a few minutes walk to the Findhorn dunes and beach. The nearby coastline is featured in many natural history programmes for the passing bottlenose dolphin population. Across the Findhorn Bay is Culbin Forest, which now stands on the largest sand dunes in the UK.

The Centre has a reputation of hosting big exhibitions in a small gallery and in the past has borrowed Renaissance drawings from the British Museum, John Byrne paintings  from the National Galleries of Scotland and even art from Billy Connelly's Estate in Scotland. During the Scottish Golf Open the Centre is also hosting a number of arts & craft activities for all the 'Golf Widows and partners' who might also travel to the area with everything from landscape painting to making candles.

Colin Montgomerie, Ryder Cup winning captain and golf course designer, served as the resident professional during the four years of crafting the book, Golf.  Co-creators Paul Skellett and Simon Weitzman drew from their fine art, brand creation, TV and film backgrounds and incorporated contributions from over fifty individuals worldwide in the golf industry including voices from the PGA, course architects, historians, coaches, caddies, commentators and historical societies.

Additionally, during the four year project, the creators painstakingly restored many rare and previously unseen archive images and created hundreds of pieces of artwork to sit alongside the 105,000 word editorial.

'Golf' is designed to entertain, enchant and amuse the lifelong golfer, the golf enthusiast, as well as reaching out to those who are new to the game, interested in the landscape it occupies, or simply fascinated by the art and culture that have influenced the game's evolution over the centuries. A trip to see the book will be a perfect idea during the Scottish Golf Open and a great place to escape if it rains!
