We’re delighted to be showcasing the work of Pat Beveridge, a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art at Falkland Palace.

Pat Beveridge has lived in Fife for most of her life and finds inspiration in the nature and landscape around her. She is especially interested in wild spaces and loves to work ‘en plain air’ when possible. Pat has been the Palace Artist at Falkland since last year and has created a beautiful body of work.

Pat will exhibit paintings in acrylic and paintings using repurposed and hand-dyed fabrics and stitch. There will also be original prints that have been made using foliage from the garden. Some of these have been embellished with stitch and fabric.

Jerome Chevet, Visitor Services Manager at Falkland says ‘Palace Perspectives is the culmination of over a year’s work in and around the palace, which had to be postponed last year when the pandemic struck. The team here are so excited to welcome Pat back to display her beautiful work.’

The exhibition of Pat’s work will be held in the Education Room within Falkland Palace, and visitors will be able to see it at the end of their palace tour or anytime whilst in the garden.

The exhibition runs Wednesday–Sunday, 11am–4.30pm from 28 July until 8 August 2021. The pieces will be available to buy.
