Beauty and the Bog at Thomas Tosh in Thornhill

Here's our window at our shop at 55 Drumlanrig Street in Thornhill celebrating our newest exhibition Beauty and the Bog in the Old Parish Hall. It's a Bold and Big exhibition from Carol Taylor, the Biggar-based artist who hails from Dumfries and Galloway. Carol worked with rural land researchers at the Macaulay Institute in Aberdeen for the exhibition. And she's created fascinating images from terrifically impressive large-scale pieces (the biggest works we've had in to date) to small intimiate works.

Carol will be here to talk to customers about her work on Saturday and Sunday, 29th and 30th May, Spring Fling weekend. She's got loads of fascinating stuff to say about her work; from her use of scanning electron microscopes to create images to the antiseptic powers of moss. As always, admission is free.
