After Aberdour comes the big one - the Pittenweem Arts Festival, with 96 official venues this year! It is a small fishing village, so this is made possible by people turning their houses into Galleries for the week of the Festival. The content varies enormously, from invited professional artists to amateurs and it attracts huge crowds of people every year. Have a look at their website - www.pittenweemartsfestival.co.uk - for a flavour of what goes on.
It seems virtually impossible to get a venue as the same artists are there every year and never give up their spot. A couple of friends and I tried for months to find somewhere to exhibit - without any luck. We'll keep trying again for next year though.
