For the summer exhibition at Unit Three Gallery we have decided to celebrate the nature of our beautiful area. We have invited artists from Dumfries and Galloway to exhibit works that use the wildlife of Galloway as their inspiration.
Lisa Hooper is a well-established figure in the art community and uses the method of print making to create strong, yet sympathetic images.
Suzi Plunkett of Little Dot Creations originally pursued the art of jewelry design but has now developed a charming artistic technique which takes a precise graphic image and transforms it into an engaging and
Dennis McCallum proudly hails from Wigtown although now lives in a little further afield. Dennis works in mixed media to produce meticulous but gentle pictures often with a whimsical twist.
Dean McMurray has a background in more robust creations consisting of twisted metal and discarded scrap but has more recently discovered a softer side using wood craft to create homes for our more ethereal Galloway residents.
Trish Holt works in acrylics and has produced a striking landscape for the exhibition.
Scott Johnson has a series of photographic images in the exhibition, a triptych of graceful Red Kites along with some landscapes. Scott uses a specific photographic technique to create striking representations.
Grace Rogerson of KGR Glass Designs is showing her amazing designs created using fused glass, a clever and delicate technique. We are pleased to able to show some of Grace’s larger pieces in the exhibition.
Martyn Toon has recently discovered the joys of Galloway and has rediscovered his love of photography in the process. His creative images reflect his ramblings in the local area.
Laura Cridford has three very pleasing pencil drawings in the exhibition and her subject matter may surprise but will definitely delight.
Trevor Leat creates spectacular sculpture in wicker, his creations have a special, woodland quality that have a genuine presence … Trevor’s work will be featured later in the exhibition due to other commitments – please check our website for updates.
This exhibition is running in conjunction with the RSPB reserve at the Crook of Baldoon, a special place very close to Unit Three in Bladnoch.
We are delighted to have been able to run an art competition in the run up to the exhibition opening with the prize fund of £100 being donated by the RSPB. The work of the competition winners in both categories will be displayed in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition and all works from the runners up will be shown on the gallery website.
“The Nature of Galloway” exhibition runs from the 12th July to the 28th August and entry is free.
The gallery is open from 10 – 4 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 12 – 4 on Saturdays, with other times by appointment.
