Hugh launches his summer's work this Saturday

Hugh Bryden is unveiling the new work he has created for his Summer at Home exhibition this coming Saturday (August 29th). And Hugh will be also holding print demonstrations and launching his new artists book collaborations.

Hugh is used to spending summers in warmer climes searching for inspiration. But staying at home in Dumfriesshire and spending time with us for one of the wettest summers in memory hasn’t dampened his spirits.

Indeed, two of the works Hugh has created for the exhibition Summer at Home capture this summer’s dominant weather theme: Blustery and Solway Rain.

Hugh has also created new works featuring well-known local sites and areas of beauty including: Kirkcudbright Tolbooth; Thornhill Cross; Powillimont Shore; Mennock Bridge and Devorgilla’s Bridge.

Print involving poetry is this Saturday’s theme. At 11am and 2pm Hugh will be showing how to create Poetry pamphlets—combining writing and simple bookbinding.

And at 3pm—Hugh will launch both of his new artists books. His collaboration with writer Chrys Salt entitled Old Times, and the other collaboration --Devorgilla’s Bridge --with poet Hugh McMillan. Both Hughs will read excerpts from the poetry pamphlets.

All the events are free, and you are very welcome to join us.
