Exhibition is a first for centre

This year’s exhibition programme at the Tolbooth Art Centre, Kirkcudbright, continues from Wednesday (March 20) with a new exhibition of photographs and small paintings by (for the first time in the art centre’s history) a grandmother/grandson duo: Margaret and Graeme Law

Margaret, from Ayr, has previously exhibited her paintings in the Tolbooth, most recently in 2010 as part of the “Five Scottish Artists” group. On this occasion, she will be exhibiting small landscape paintings in oils and pen wash.

Margaret says of her work: “I have drawn and painted all my life. I am fortunate to live on the beautiful west coast of Scotland with its wonderful scenery and its continual changes of weather patterns. I also enjoy painting the sunshine of the Mediterranean, especially Majorca, and the flowers from my garden.”

Margaret is a member of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists, Ayr Art Circle and the National Acrylic Painters Association.

Her grandson, Graeme, also from Ayr, recently graduated from the University of the West of Scotland with a degree which included photography. He will be showing long-exposure landscape photographs.

Their joint exhibition runs in the Tolbooth Art Centre until Saturday, April 4. The Tolbooth opens daily from 11am to 4pm, and admission is free.
