Allan C. Beveridge
Allan’s passion for art goes back to primary school when he received a commendation in the Fife Primary Schools Art Competition in 1958. He also studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee.
He’s won prizes in the Shell Fife Art Exhibition in 1985 with his creation ‘Annual Dance of the White Mice’, and in 2005 for a painting of Crail Harbour, now part of NHS Fife’s art collection.
His work has been exhibited at the Mayfair Gallery in London and three of his pieces of work are held by the gallery and museum of London’s Bethlem Royal Hospital, a specialist centre for the treatment of mental illness, and one of them – ‘Me, Myself, I’ – has recently been on loan to the prestigious Wellcome Collection in the capital for an exhibition ‘Brains: The Mind as Matter’.
