Posted on the


The Scottish National Party’s Mr Pete Wishart MP, Member of Parliament for Perth & North Perthshire has sent his best wishes to everyone involved in an interesting local art project run by PLUS Perth.

“New Leaves – New Links” is the latest community project by PLUS,  building on the success of “One Leaf – One Link”, a community art exhibition held at Perth Concert Hall in October 2007.

Speaking today (Monday) Mr Wishart said:

“Well done to all the PLUS volunteers under the leadership of artist Jackie Proctor who have been putting this interesting project together.

‘New Leaves – New Links’  has a springtime theme and encourages those taking part to examine values such as friendship, purpose and belonging – values that matter most to individual and for collective wellbeing.

“The work that has been created at local workshops in the community is being posted on a special Facebook page and the project will be rounded off with an exhibition in St Matthews Church during the Perth Festival Of the Arts from 22-27th May.

“There are many beautiful, interesting and thought-provoking pieces of art and poetry to be seen and I would encouraging everyone to have a look.

“Well done to all involved and I hope that the exhibition finale will be a great success.”
