Fisher Studio & Gallery

from: 2 Jan  2014 until: 31 Dec  2015

While most of the once thriving harbours along the pretty East Neuk coast are now home to pleasure-craft and small fishing boats, Pittenweem still retains its fishing industry and busy fish market.  Artists have long been a part of the local community, and many more have come to live here recently, showing their work in the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival.
 
The Fisher Studio & Gallery exhibits work by contemporary artists and craftworkers, most of whom are based in Scotland.  Exhibitions take the form of a mixed display of both well-known and newly qualified artists, the exhibits and artists changing throughout the season. We have a core of very popular artists whose work we show regularly, including the resident artist, Jan Fisher whose Scottish landscapes, seascapes and rock studies have a wide appeal to her many collectors.  She works in watercolour and oil in her studio above the gallery, drawing her inspiration from the changing seasons in the many beautiful areas of Scotland where she has lived and re-visits regularly.

 

John Fisher, who trained as a painter, left London to enjoy a life of freedom from the rat-race.  He lived in Canada for a while before settling in Scotland. He and Jan decided to open their own gallery and eventually came to Pittenweem, where he successfully runs the Fisher Studio & Gallery, which takes up all of his time

The Fisher Gallery publishes a comprehensive selection of framed and unframed giclee prints by Jan and Anna Fisher. Subjects include the East Fife villages of Elie, St Monans, Crail, Anstruther, Cellardyke and Pittenweem, also St Andrews and views across the Forth to Edinburgh, the Bass Rock and the May Isle, and the beaches and skies of the west coast.

Fife Folk Museum

from: 1 Apr  2014 until: 31 Oct  2014

This volunteer-run Fife Folk Museum has an excellent collection of Fife history covering several centuries, from agriculture in the 18th century when there was far-reaching change in Scottish agriculture, with widespread ideas about improvement which were felt rapidly in Fife. In the course of the century the farming economy of Fife changed fundamentally; the old run-rig lands were divided and enclosed and the commons were divided and ploughed up or planted with trees to provide very much the pattern of fields and landscape still evident today.

 

The collection of agricultural exhibits in the Fife Folk Museum reflects the smaller tools and equipment of the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Extremely functional, the tools were specifically designed for particular jobs. Large horn milk-ladle, a very old staved plunger churn, a wooden milk-pail or "luggie", a curd-breaker to break up the curd in cheese-making.

 

The Fife Folk Museum also has an interesting collection of clothing worn in Fife from the mid-18th-century.  The finest of the black gowns is a heavily-beaded black satin trimmed with purple for the bride's mother to wear at her daughter's marriage in 1899. Some of the costumes, particularly baby robes, collars, cuffs and petticoats are decorated with fine whitework embroidery.

The Fife Folk Museum has collections of tools and equipment belonging to bakers, blacksmiths, butchers, clay pipe makers, coopers, joiners, plasterers, plumbers, shoemakers, slaters, stonemasons, thatchers, tilers, weavers, wheelwrights and others.

Tobacco was brought to England during the second half of the 16th century, from North and South America.  From about 1650 until the early 20th century clay pipes were common finds on archaeological sites and in gardens.

 

During much of the 18th century, however, snuff taking became fashionable, and far fewer pipes were found.  In the 19th century pipes began to be made from a much wider range of materials, including wood (briar), and meerschaum, a naturally occurring form of magnesium silicate, which could be carved.  Cigar smoking was also introduced in the early 19th century, brought back from Spain by soldiers who had fought in the Peninsular War.  Fifty years later the cigarette was introduced from South America.

The Fife Folk Museum is housed in a group of listed buildings in the centre of the attractive village of Ceres, situated about 2 miles ESE of Cupar and about 6 miles WSW of St Andrews.

FIFE FOLK MUSEUM Open 7 days 1st Apr - 31st Oct, 10.30-4.30 daily, Adults £4.00 Children free. Conc £3.00 Pre-booked groups £2.50 per person. Tel 01334 828180

St Andrews Peservation Trust Museum & Garden

from: 1 Apr  2014 until: 30 Nov  2014

The St Andrews Preservation Trust Museum is a small, independent museum in a lovely 17th century fisherman's house in the heart of the town. It was once inhabited by up to twenty people at any one time. In the 1930s, the building was sympathetically restored and purchased in the 1960s by the Preservation Trust.

 

The Preservation Trust Museum mounts several exhibitions each year, recent exhibitions include the history of the ancient harbour and the local fishing community, the Victorians, the 1950s and the development of St Andrews from settlement to city.

The Preservation Trust Museums' collections includes an important collection of some 10,000 photographs, postcards, slides and glass negatives. These can be viewed by arrangement with the curator and copies can be requested. Visitors can purchase postcards, as well as a wide variety of publications with a local history flavour.

 

The Preservation Trust Museum is home to a wealth of fascinating information and objects pertaining to the history of St Andrews and its people. The ground floor is home to permanent displays featuring old St Andrews shops and businesses including grocers, Aikman & Terras, Keith's the Chemist and Duncan's the Dentist.

 

Outside in the award-winning gardensof the Preservation Trust Museum, visitors can enjoy a glimpse into the past courtesy of Great Granny's Wash House and a recently restored outside privy.

The Preservation Trust Museum's 'Museum Juniors' section, providing fun worksheets and competitions for children aged 3-12. The worksheets are specific to each exhibition and have proved very popular with younger visitors.

Open daily 2 to 5pm: Easter Week, May to Sept and St Andrews Week (Nov) Entry free.
