THE Alhambra has celebrated its centenary with a ceiling mural by a Fife artist.

Celie Byrne, a Scottish contemporary, multi-disciplined artist, painted the ceiling of the theatre foyer in celebration of 100 years of the iconic Dunfermline venue.

Influenced by the work of artists such as Henri Matisse and depicting the Greek Muses, the goddesses of literature, science, and the arts, the mural is a bright and welcoming addition to Fife's oldest place of continuous entertainment.

Claire Jones PR manager for the Alhambra, said: "We are thrilled with the new theatre ceiling mural, the use of colour is simply stunning. It is a very beautiful focal point, unmissable when entering the Alhambra. Celie is a hugely-talented artist and we cannot wait for our patrons to see the mural at their next theatre trip."

Celie, a recent graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and a prolific painter who also produces murals as a part of the Kelty Street Art initiative, commented: "It has been a joy to help mark 100 years of the Alhambra with this mural. This iconic Dunfermline landmark has been a beacon of light for audiences and acts alike.

"Now that live performance is back, the public can enjoy a bright, colourful, visual experience as soon as they arrive inside the Alhambra. The mural is designed to create an uplifting feel, and for all those that view the piece to enjoy an emotional connection with art."
