Showtime #2 – Beyond The Border
My project on the Antonine Wall, called ‘Edge of an Empire’, is now on show as part of the Document Scotland exhibition ‘Beyond The Border’, at Impressions Gallery, Bradford, until Sept 27th.
On 3rd July we held an opening party at the Gallery, which was well attended by friends new and old, as well as family. Thank you all for coming! The evening was kindly sponsored by Tunnocks who supplied 300 of their famous Scottish chocolate wafer biscuits.
Our show was opened by Anne McNeill of Impressions Gallery, with an added great touch that Annie Lyden, International Curator of Photography at the National Galleries of Scotland, journeyed down from Edinburgh to also say a few words and to discuss the work and open the show. Thank you both Anne and Annie!
Below are a few images of the show and the opening day festivities.
The show runs until September 27th.

Showtime #1 – Going The Distance.
‘Going The Distance’ opens to the public tomorrow, Monday 7th July…!
I’m pleased to say that some of my work is appearing in a Street Level Photoworks and Harbour Arts Centre group photography show called ‘Going The Distance’. More information here.
My work on show at Going The Distance, Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine, Scotland.
The description and theme of the show is “Sport, like art, is a universal language, it is part of our everyday lives, and a feature of our society’s diverse cultural life, involving people of all abilities and backgrounds. This exhibition, which takes place in two venues across North Ayrshire coincides with the Commonwealth Games in Scotland and celebrates the exceptional and the commonplace in sport”.
7 July – 1 August at the Heritage Centre, Saltcoats, Scotland.
7 July – 28 September at the Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine, Scotland, with a reception to be held on Saturday 12th July, at 3pm. My work will be shown at this venue.
TBC – The show will also travel to Eastwood Park Gallery, Giffnock, Scotland.
