The St. Andrew’s Charity Ball is a unique experience, rich in tradition, colour, and movement. These elements, though memorable to all who attend the event are often difficult to catch through a lens. For this reason, we would like to thank two Scottish artists, Tim Cockburn and Janet McCrorie having granted the St. Andrew’s Society of Toronto their permission to use the images of their fabulous artwork.
Tim Cockburn is an artist and printmaker working in the historic harbour town of Pittenweem, County Fife, Scotland.
Tim is one of Scotland’s most distinctive artists. His subjects are scenes that are easily recognised from everyday life and events, capturing in exquisitely observed small details in his own inimitable style both the characters and situations.
While working on an Open College of the Arts (O.C.A) extended study on the theme of 'dance', Janet began experimenting with mixed media to capture the movement and the unique look of the tartan in Scottish dance. Her aim is to bring images of Scottish dancing to life, as something we all enjoy, and to invoke a sense of pride and nostalgia while putting a modern twist on the spectacle of these ancient traditional dances.
