‘It Goes To My Heart’…..From Kilmorack Gallery…...From The RSPB….

It Goes To My Heart


It goes to my heart

The distress of a dog

A good-natured

Good-hearted dog

Who doesn’t understand why

His human isn’t here


I tell him it’s OK

That’s he’ll be back soon

But he doesn’t understand

And is distressed

And it goes to my heart


This has taught me

That I’ll never

Take a dog into my life again…

They go to my heart.

From Kilmorack Gallery….

We have lots of new work in the gallery over June. This includes three mini-exhibitions - of work by Mark Edwards, Tansy Lee Moir and Maggie New. These show from 1st June until 29th June.

Mark Edwards is known for his mysterious White Wood series of paintings, and these are the first fresh works by the artist in the gallery for some time. We have seven paintings from First to Arrive until Last to Leave.

Maggie New masters colour and form with a dexterity that immediately draws us to places that vibrate with natural energies. The moon, spring growth and sea-facing light are rarely rendered with such subtle evocation. These tales are told in thirty fresh works.

Tansy Lee Moir lives a life deeply steeped in treedom, and these powerful works are the result, using charcoal to bridge arboreal and human worlds. She has called this latest collection of work Ghosts.

A new 3d tour will be posted as soon as work is hung and photographed.



Each of Maggie New’s thirty paintings in this exhibition takes us to a time and a place in the artist’s life - a garden, seeing the moon or a journey to an island – and every moment is poetically brought back through New's inimitable use of colour and composition. These are subtle and powerful works which can be seen in the gallery throughout June.

Just arrived, seven new works by Tansy Lee Moir. Lee Moir lives a life steeped in treedom, and these powerful works are the result, using charcoal to bridge arboreal and human worlds. She has called this collection ‘Ghosts.’

These will be exhibited in the gallery throughout June.
Just arrived, seven new paintings by Mark Edwards. These take us into Edward’s White Woods again. His homburg-hatted paintings lure us into it, with the guile of a black-and-white film noir plot, but there’s more there – rich textures, warm tones and unexpected shadows make these paintings deeply compelling.

From The RSPB….

“From reedbeds to roundhouse

Did you know that the RSPB manages reedbeds on the River Tay to help species like Bearded Tits and Marsh Harriers? But that's not all! Our Tay Reedbeds nature reserve in Perthshire is also the last source of commercial reed for thatching in Scotland.

In this video see how the reed from our reserve is being used to create traditional roundhouses at the Scottish Crannog Centre. And find out how boosting Scotland's natural and cultural heritage go hand in hand.”
