Deeside artist hosts exhibtion

Renowned Deeside artist Howard Butterworth is hosting a new exhibition in Aberdeen between April 30 to May 26.

This spring a retrospective of original paintings by Howard Butterworth will be held at the new Tivoli Theatre Gallery.

Established as one of the great painters of Scotland, Howard’s patrons include private and corporate buyers with several works featuring in The Royal Collection.

The work at the exhibition will span over 50 years and covers his early career, his travels through Europe, his journeys to the West Coast of Scotland, the mountains, rivers and glens of his beloved Deeside and Aberdeen itself.

Born in Rochdale, 1945. Howard has lived and painted professionally in Northern Scotland since 1968. Howard’s patrons include private and corporate buyers with several works featuring in the Royal Collection of H.M. Queen Elizabeth and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother who closely supported him over the years.

Over the years he has painted and exhibited frequently in Scotland and Spain – where he travelled across Europe to paint the almond blossom each spring.

His work has increased in popularity worldwide, particularly his paintings of Scotland including those of native birchwoods, Caledonian pine forests, heather covered moorland and snowcapped mountains with the lively waters and bridges of Deeside.

Equally popular are his oil paintings and watercolour paintings of the West Coast, historic castles, harbours, and city street scenes.

His work spans the whole of Scotland and parts of Europe, many of his paintings are now published as prints, cards and giftware.

Howard has his own gallery- ‘The Butterworth Gallery’ at Balogie, Aboyne.

The exhibition will be open Tuesdays to Sunday between 10 am and 4.30pm.
