In-Person Event

The James McBey Project


Saturday, January 27, 2024

Newburgh Village Hall

Newburgh Village Hall launches the James McBey Project, 140 years after the birth of the Aberdeen-born artist and adventurer. With a free talk by biographer Alasdair Soussi.

Ahead of the 140th anniversary of McBey's birth on 23 December 2023, the James McBey Project Team erected two threshold road signs honouring McBey at either end of Newburgh where he lived as a child, oversaw the assembly of a plaque on McBey's childhood home in the village and cleaned up the Gillespie family gravestone marking the burial place of McBey’s mother, and other family members at Foveran Parish Church. Other developments will include the production of 1,000 tourist leaflets on McBey and the construction of a tourist information board outside McBey's birthplace at Newmill.

The project team see all of these as the start of a bid to make James McBey’s life and works a bona fide tourist attraction, linking his Aberdeenshire birthplace to his spiritual home of Aberdeen Art Gallery where many of his artworks reside.

Join us at 7pm on 27th January at the official launch of the James McBey Project. Secure your place via Eventbrite.
