The old Bladnoch Creamery buildings continue their rebirth by welcoming a new art venture this month.

Unit 3 Gallery, on the edge of the River Bladnoch, is the latest addition to the Galloway arts scene.

Hosted by Dowling Stoves, but independent of the business, Unit 3 Gallery aims to display work that challenges the norm, arranging bi-monthly exhibitions of work from within and from beyond the area, that ‘stretch the mind a bit’, as Steve Dowling puts it. Visitors are advised to expect the unexpected.

The first exhibition, called ‘Down with Gravity’ opens on Monday, with the preview on Saturday and features the work of kinetic sculptor David Williams.

David now lives near Monreith, but hails originally from the Black Country.

He has taught in art colleges around Britain, and his work is displayed world wide. Some of you may know of him from meccano maquettes in some local shop windows; here’s a chance to see the real things in all their glory, as well as thought provoking wall pieces.

Opening times will be between 10am-4pm Monday to Saturday, unless otherwise stated online (www.unit3gallery.co.uk) – please call 01988 402 666 for more information.
