An art show that has been running for four decades is opening its doors this week in East Renfrewshire.

The Clarkston Art Show, which started in 1981, will take place this Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6 at Clarkston Hall.

Over its 40-year existence, the show has raised thousands of pounds for international development organisation, Christian Aid.

Anne Clark, a member of the organising committee, said: "There will be over 200 paintings for sale by both amateur and professional artists.

"The artists donate one third of the selling price to Christian Aid and prices range from £45 - £960.

"There are also cards for sale and a craft stall, so there really is something for everyone and it’s a great opportunity to support Christian Aid."

The show will run from 7.30pm until 9pm on Friday and 10am until 4pm on Saturday.

Val Brown, head of Christian Aid Scotland, said: "The money raised will go towards Christian Aid’s work, through local partners, supporting communities living in extreme poverty in nearly 30 countries: whether that’s supporting young women in Bangladesh with business training or building the resilience of remote communities being impacted by climate change in Ethiopia or Malawi.”

Entry to the sale costs £5 for adults and £2 for children, inclusive of refreshments.
