News from our artists

Congratulations are due to a few of our brilliant artists.

Current President of the Paisley Art Institute, Michael Durning has been given The Diploma of Artist Membership of the Paisley Art Institute, which abbreviates to PAI. This is awarded by the Institute on the recommendation of the Credentials Committee whose members are themselves holders of the Diploma. So, his new post-nominals are Michael Durning PPAI PAI. The letters PAI are granted in perpetuity and at any one time only 35 living artists hold this honour. Michael is doing a sterling job as President of the Society at the moment and really deserves this recognition of his work.

James Cosgrove PAI has been elected to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW). He joins the 123 elected members who are permitted use the title RSW after their name. Many congratulations Jimmy!

And finally, Simon Laurie RSW RGI is featured in the January/February issue of Homes and Interiors Scotland Magazine in their 'True Colours' article, which showcases contemporary Scottish painters who are well known for their use of colour.
