Samantha Parker meets a photographer whose photos capturing life in Whitehaven during the 1950s and 60s have gone on display at a new outdoor gallery.
The first exhibition of the year is set to open at Coldstream Museum, showing the work of a local artist.
Rich Johnson's exhibition is called Squarescapes, and features landscapes inspired by his surroundings:
“My art is influenced by the landscape of the area - woods, fields and streams – and playing, walking and exploring them.
“It had a profound influence on me and I keep coming back to these themes in my work. I'm interested in borders generally - where trees meet fields, where the horizon meets the sky and of course where the land meets the sea.
"Squarescapes started life as small eight-inch square canvasses, little snapshots of landscape as glimpsed and remembered while travelling around the Borders, but they gradually grew larger.”
Squarescapes opens on Monday 30 March until Sunday 31 May.
The exhibition will be open 9:30am to 12:30pm and 1pm to 4pm, Monday to Saturday, and 2pm to 4pm on Sundays.
