David-Reid-Exhibition-Poster-wAN ART exhibition featuring the work of a former Helensburgh minister will be held next weekend of his former church.

The Rev David Reid was minister in Old and St. Andrew's Church, now Helensburgh Parish Church, from 1973-85, and a retrospective exhibition of his work will be held in the Helensburgh Parish Church Halls on Saturday Septewmber 23 from 10am-5pm and Sunday September 24 from 12.30-4.30pm.

Organiser Mary Duncan said: "As well as having been highly respected and well-liked as a minister here and in further charges, he was an exceptionally talented and prolific watercolour artist.

"He had a natural, almost canny ability to capture the ever changing light found in nature, within our own shores or further afield."

The exhibition will consist of some 175 unframed paintings, all of which will be for sale by donation — suggested minimum price between £25 and £45.

David was a first cousin of Priscilla Dorward, a well known member of Helensburgh and District Art Club for many years before moving south to be close to her sister.

Mary added: "David obviously inherited the same artistic genes! Please come if you can and give your support."

All proceeds will be divided between Helensburgh Parish Church and the Iona Community.
