Forgan Arts Centre are delighted to announce the appointment of Alana Peden as their new Centre Co-ordinator.
Alana is a successful local artist having graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art with a First class honours degree, where she was subsequently invited back as Designer in Residence. She has since exhibited her jewellery across the country. Alana is based in St Andrews where she also runs her own studio, creating porcelain and silver jewellery on commission.
"I am really looking forward to joining the Forgan community and working to grow the centre to its full potential. This is an important time for Forgan Arts, as we pave a secure path for the centres future. Forgan Arts Centre offers an extensive programme of arts and crafts and is considered somewhat of a hidden gem.
I signed up for a pottery class and completely fell in love with the place. A mere stride from a stop of the local '99' bus route, it's easy to reach from both Fife and Tayside. I couldn't believe that it had been here waiting for me all of this time!"
Alana is joining us after 10 years in both management and charity fundraising for lifestyle brand White Stuff.
Alana Peden will be joining Forgan Arts Centre from Tuesday 16th February 2016.
