What's coming up at Thomas Tosh: July and August

Summer is in full swing at Tosh. The Vanishing Scotland exhibition was launched this week and has been sparking a lot of local interest.  We will be updating the blog about events linked to this exhibition. 

And Burns: The Taxman is back at Tosh until the end of the summer as well. 

There's a couple of other things that will hopefully whet your appetite. 
JoAnne McKay is launching her new poetry collection The Fat Plant at TT on Sunday July 12th at 3pm. JoAnne's recital is worth catching as she delivers her readings extremely well. The Fat Plant has various themes including JoAnne's experiences as a  police officer. But her family background dominates and provides rich insights into life. 

And then in August, printmaker Hugh Bryden is launching Summer at Home, which ties in with Homecoming 2009. Hugh will be running workshops in printing and bookmaking. And his exhibition will change during its run to reflect a summer in Dumfriesshire.
