“There is also some work that needs to be done to the building before the public can use it again.”
Elizabeth explained why the group was so keen to use the former library, which closed after the Strathearn Community Campus opened and the facility moved to within that building.
“It is central and very accessible to footfall, which is something we want to encourage.
“Groups within the town are trying to regenerate the High Street and we wanted to help them by having an exhibition that people can access from the High Street.”
She added: “We had looked at other venues, including the Strathearn Community Campus, but the problem there is that you can’t hang anything on the walls.
“The library has everything we need in one place.”
The group is now hoping to get access to the building to start planning the layout.
Crieff artist June McEwan has joined the committee to organise the exhibition and bring in local schools and organisations to be a part of the display.
She explained: “The museum has agreed to lend us paintings, the star is an oil painting by H Cakly circa 1840, titled “Crieff from the South”.
“Local artists who will contribute, so far, include David Campbell, Anne Taylor, Pedro and members of the Strathearn Arts Society.”
June has also been commissioned by Celebrate Crieff.
There will be photographic displays, a display from the Tartan Authority, pieces by local crafters co-ordinated by Mandy Moore of An Cnoc, pottery by Joe Hunter of Thistle Pottery and community contributions.
