A festival, which brings world music and local traditions to the Galloway uplands, is celebrating its twentieth birthday.
Thousands of people have been camping out in a valley north of Carsphairn this weekend, to take part in the Knockengorroch World Ceilidh festival.
A major exhibition of work by the Scottish Colourists has opened at The Granary Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed.
‘Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection’ includes 26 works by SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, George Leslie Hunter and FCB Cadell.
It is the first ever dedicated exhibition of Scottish Colourists in the north of England, and the first major touring exhibition curated by the renowned Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation.
We are absolutely delighted to be working in partnership with The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation to bring this wonderful collection of outstanding artworks to Berwick-upon-Tweed and to support us in our mission to bring truly world-class arts and culture to the town.
The Colourists were at the forefront of European modernism at the start of the twentieth century marking them out as one of the most radical groups in British art at that time. This show is a wonderful opportunity to see a representative collection of their work, which has rarely been exhibited before now in a public gallery.
