Slow Marathon Refreshment Pit Stop and Exhibition

On Saturday 10th of May, Deveron Arts held their Slow Marathon. The Slow Marathon is now an annual event and this year’s 26 mile route followed the historic drove road known as the Hielan’ Way, from Glenkindie to Huntly.

Silja, SSW’s intern, organised a refreshment pit stop in an abandoned cottage two miles from Lumsden. This spot marked the first 1/4 of the marathon. In addition to refreshments, she also installed an exhibition of her own work, work by Dundee based Josie Moore and work by four of our recent Emerging Artist residents, Tom Woodcock, Katie Anderson, Isabelle Sully and Vanessa Vaughan.

Here are Josie and Silja handing out teas, coffees and baked goods to the walkers (photo courtesy: Deveron Arts)
