Get a collectable piece of art and help the River Dee Trust

For all who hold the River Dee close to their heart there is a great opportunity to obtain artwork by Howard Butterworth. To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Dee District Salmon Fishery Board in 2013, Howard attended the River Dee opening ceremony at Ballogie, beside Potarch Bridge and has produced a commemorative painting of the occasion. The painting captures Alastair Hume performing the ceremonial cast to the large assembled audience.


A limited run of 100 numbered high quality Giclee images of the painting have been produced and are available to purchase for £100 excluding vat. Howard has very kindly offered to donate £25 from every purchase to the River Dee Trust. The image can be viewed and purchased through Howard’s website link The Butterworth Gallery River Dee Opening Ceremony 2013  It’s a historic moment for the River and we hope that it will appeal to a great number of people.
