When is this event?

  1. 31st May 2024

Rachel Sermanni is a Scottish based singer/songwriter that makes the mundane moments mystical: shock-positive pregnancy tests in train-station toilets, coffee machine breakages, cold river swims, the regret of not saying ‘I love You’, the moon & how it pulls, bare feet on wood floors, the soft glow of a house plant, ‘what even is consciousness?’, strange dreams lingering in quiet mornings…

She brims with dreamy indie-folk pop that speaks of the struggle and desire to Flow, to love, to live, to feel. Sometimes, her songs speak of the rare moments of quiet-still, found in the midst of this struggle & desire.

The Braemar Nature Festival 10-19 May programme has landed!

Through a fantastic collaborative effort we have been able to pull together over 20 events over the week covering everything from health and nature walks to film nights, bat and moth safari’s to a Wood Ant walk. Several of our local estates are offering exciting events to learn more about the work they are undertaking, show you some of their wildlife and have the opportunity to assist with some conservation volunteering.

Discover more about Braemars past with a fascinating glaciology walk, learn how to use camera traps to their full extent and become a mountain hare surveyor; these are just a few of the events we have planned.

A full programme complete with booking links is available here:…/braemar-nature-festival-2024

If you are an individual, organisation or business who would like to get involved then please do get in touch either here or [email protected]; the more people we can engage with nature the better!

And finally please spread the word. You can save this jpeg and circulate it to any groups and individuals who may be interested or print it out and place in your business window for everyone to see!

We look forward to seeing you all in May.

This collection is representative of Joanna Wilson’s early interest in the metaphysical power of art. The healing properties of crystals, the inner wisdom of oracle cards and the outward sense that a greater power
is at work — all of these inform her attempts to connect her own creativity with Creation itself. Her hope is that the unique intentions with which each piece is created transfers to its viewer or owner.

Come and meet Van Coo: the curly-haired bull missing part of his ear, just like his namesake! In 2021 he wandered into the creative imagination of local artist Joanna Wilson. Here he was joined by other creatures of the Cairngorms before finding form in the expressive mixed media for which Wilson is best known.

An award-winning artist of international acclaim, Wilson grew up among these glens before work and study took her far and wide, from the Hayward Gallery to Yale University. Her abstract and figurative paintings can be found in private and public collections all over the world.

Coming home to set up her studio in Grantown-on-Spey reconnected Wilson with her Highland roots. This limited collection of prints represents a unique opportunity to own a lighthearted example of her work that celebrates this land and its inhabitants.

Not many people around here know about Joanna Wilson’s secret life as an international artist. And yet her hideaway studio on Heathfield Road is filled with thousands of art works: floor-to-ceiling abstracted figures that seem to leap from her fingertips and dance across her walls.

A Saatchi Featured Artist and the recipient of numerous awards, Joanna’s work appears in private and public collections throughout the world. But not until now has it received an exhibition space of its own right here in her hometown.

Encountering her work for the first time you will notice a lilting, musical quality to her handling of form, reminiscent of the glens where she grew up. But her compositions incorporate geometric and purely decorative elements too, which seem to reference the urban settings of Edinburgh and London, where she has also lived and worked as an artist.

A full-circle moment for Joanna, this very room is where she met with the Bank Manager to open her business account some 18 years ago. Now with a flourishing business of her own, she has created O P E N S P A C E to share her platform with other contemporary artists searching for a safe space to showcase their own groundbreaking work.

Thoughtful and expressive, modest and exuberant — to know Joanna’s art is to know the artist herself, which is why her work so universally approachable and collectible.
