Deborah Beeson, comes from Rhynie near Huntly and was invited to be our ‘Artist for all Seasons’ for a period of two years starting from September 2005.
In an increasingly homogenised world, what is the role and impact of seasons on our lifestyles? Huntly, steeped in history, with year-round celebrations, is no less a victim of this trend. Are seasonal celebrations an outdated frill to our society or do they play a role in keeping us rooted and interested in our communal activity? Where is the value of local produce when one can easily get year-round supplies from across the world?
