Place Identity Memory--last few days

Art takes the form of books in our latest exhibition at Thomas Tosh: Place Identity Memory. The books on display are either unique works or special limited editions created by local and international artists.

The exhibition finishes this coming Monday (21st September) so there are a few more days to catch it. It is well worth the effort.

The exhibition gives visitors the chance to pick up and peruse these works of art. It is a tactile, intimate experience with the books. There's also a great catalogue to go with the exhibition, designed by former TT artist-in-resident Hugh Bryden.

Place Identity Memory comes to Thomas Tosh after a successful debut at Gracefields Galleries in Dumfries, and it's next destination is the Stranraer Museum.

The exhibition has been organised by IRIS, a collective of artists. IRIS includes: Hugh Bryden; Jeremy Carlisle; Robbie Coleman; Linda Mallett; Andy Priestman; Julian Watson and Denise Zygaldo. All the artists live and work here in Dumfries and Galloway.

Last chance to see: Hugh and Burns today

It's the last day for our two summer exhibitions today (5th September 2009). Burns: The Taxman has been with us since January. But from next week we are loaning it out.

And artist-in-residence Hugh Bryden is holding his final workshops.

Hugh will be running two monoprinting workshops at 11am and 2pm and will be at Tosh all day. You are very welcome to try your hand and the workshops are free.
