Harbour Art’s Centre

Planning a walk down Irvine Harbourside any time soon? If so, why not pop into the Harbour Arts Centre to see the latest exhibition by local artist Peter Tudhope Painting ⛵️
Showcasing his work at our arts and cultural hub, the ‘Then and Now’ exhibition is on display in the HAC’s main galleries until Saturday 20 August.
Bold, bright and brimming with coastal inspiration, the dazzling selection of artworks showcases Peter’s development from an expressive style of work, that he adopted prior to 2015, to that of a more colourful and vibrant style 🎨
Opening times can be found on the website here: https://thehac.co.uk/home/visitor-info
