We’ve been furiously checking prints, sending work to the framers, proofing text, editing, making phonecalls, and finishing long term projects shot over the last year or more in preparation for our group show, Beyond The Border: New Contemporary Photography from Scotland at Impressions Gallery in Bradford. We are delighted to invite you to the opening night which is on the 3rd July.
If you can’t make the opening evening, then there will be a series of professional development events including portfolio reviews and an artists’ talk with Sophie Gerrard, Colin McPherson and Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert on Saturday 26th July. We’d be delighted to see you at those, please follow the links above for further details and booking info as places are limited.
Otherwise – if you are in Bradford over the summer please come along and see the exhibition. It opens on the 1st July and runs through till the 27th September. It’s been a pleasure to work with Anne McNeil and her wonderful team from Impressions Gallery on this and we look forward to seeing you on the 3rd to hear Anne Lyden from The Scottish National Portrait Gallery officially open the exhibition and to share a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer and wee dram or two.
Sophie, Colin, Jeremy & Stephen.
Beyond The Border, New Contemporary Photography from Scotland at Impressions Gallery from 1st July – 27th September 2014
Friends, Romans, Countrymen, I’ve very nicely been invited to make a small talk and presentation of some new photography work next week and I’d like to invite you all.
This past summer I’ve spent a bit of time out on the Antonine Wall, walking, exploring, getting some wind in my face, and shooting images which show the present day Wall and its surrounds. I’ve called the project Edge Of An Empire, as the 39km long wall, crossing Scotland’s central belt, was the most north western edge of the Roman Empire.
Next week during Falkirk’s Big Roman Week, held to celebrate the birthday of Emperor Antoninus Pious, who commissioned the Wall, I shall be presenting the photographs and be in conversation with Geoff Bailey, Keeper of Archaeology at Falkirk Community Trust. The event will take place at Bo’ness Library, Scotland’s Close, Bo’ness, EH51 OAH, at 7.30pm on Friday 20th September. The event is free and a light supper will be served! If you’re in the neighbourhood, please come along.
With thanks to The Friends of Kinneil in offering me the invite to take part in the week of celebrations and events.
