David Blyth

Town Artist

2005 – 2007

A sustained relationship with town folks

David Blyth undertook the first ever residency offered by Deveron Projects back in 1998. Since then David has returned to the town in his two-year position as town artist during 2005-7. The idea of the Town Artist is a collaborative project which seeks to develop dynamic partnerships between local groups and Deveron Projects.

During this time David embarked on a number of projects, addressing themes as diverse as people's relationship to animals, bothy ballads and farming life. Projects in the first year included:

Bridle Suite / Pommel Pony
Scranky Black Farmer

His time in Huntly culminated in a project entitled Knockturne, for which he worked with a local sheep farmer during the lambing season.
