COAST Festival is excited to announce that, in collaboration with Just Art Gallery, Francis Boag will be opening his 2009 solo exhibition at the Festival this May!

A retrospective of his work was exhibited at Just Art last year, celebrating his career to date and marking his 60th Birthday. This exhibition was critically acclaimed and has subsequently led to his work being included in a number of important private collections.

In addition to the exhibition, COAST can confirm that the man himself will be attending the Festival to host a talk about his work on Saturday 23rd May at 1.30pm and will then be in attendance for the rest of the afternoon to answer any questions.

COAST Festival of the Visual Arts will be taking place for the second year running in Banff & Macduff over the holiday weekend of 22nd to 25th May 2009. The Festival, which is supported by Aberdeenshire Council, Scottish Enterprise and EventScotland, and sponsored in 2009 by, Deveron Coaches and John Stewart, seeks to deliver a nationally and internationally important annual visual arts festival to attract increased visitors to the Banffshire Coast.
