SOC announces Christmas art exhibition


The Scottish Ornithologists' Club (SOC) is set to host a Christmas art exhibition at its Aberlady headquarters, with the event opening on 11 November.

The exhibition is a celebration of Scottish wildlife by watercolour maestro and naturalist Keith Brockie. For close to 40 years, Keith has studied and painted the wildlife of Scotland. He has always been more than an observer of nature, in particular, he has long been engaged in the monitoring and protection of birds of prey in Scotland.

His work reflects his acute knowledge of animals but also his deep care for them. In this exhibition, Keith presents new watercolours recording close encounters with wildlife from the hills of Perthshire to the East Lothian coast.

The exhibition runs from 16 November 2022 until 15 January 2023 at the SOC's Waterston House headquarters in Aberlady. The opening hours are Wednesdays to Sundays from 10 am until 4 pm. Entry is free.
