ExhibitionUntil 25 January'From Woods to Water' Exhibition by Kerry Thomas
10am - 5pm @ WWT Caerlaverock, Eastpark Farm, Caerlaverock DG1 4RS
Kerry Thomas is an artist and maker based near Lockerbie. Kerry has created a collection of pictures using the themes of woods and water, two of the key habitats in Dumfries & Galloway. She specialises in creating pictures using wool and other fibres in a process called needle-felting, which uses a type of barbed needle to felt fibres together. Her work in this media is mainly landscapes, seascapes and woodland scenes, and each of her pieces is original artwork, including each greetings card. Some of these pictures are also embellished with machine and hand stitching, and she frames all of her own pictures using box frames to separate the fibres from the glass to give the viewer the scene through a window. Her other work on exhibition here is in mixed media, using mainly watercolours in a more abstract form but also based on the theme of landscapes.
Free Entry.

Exhibition26 Jan-7 March 'Alla Prima studies in nature' Exhibition by Gary Haughan
10am - 5pm @ WWT Caerlaverock, Eastpark Farm, Caerlaverock DG1 4RS
The work for this exhibition is my response to local wildlife and an attempt to capture their essence.  Most encounters with nature are short and fleeting and these works aim to capture and record them. The work is the culmination of many visits to the centre and its surrounding countryside. Alla Prima translated directly from Italian means all at once and refers specifically to my painting method. Paintings are done in one session working fast and spontaneous. This means there is always an element of surprise and controlled experimentation to my work which hopefully creates a sense of energy and excitement. The paintings are in Acrylic on both canvas and paper. Free Entry.

7pm - 8.30pm @ The Devil's Porridge Museum, Annan Rd, Eastriggs DG12 6TF
2020 is Scotland's Year of Coasts and Waters. The Devil's Porridge Museum is located near the Solway Firth and we are part of the Solway Firth Partnership which works "to support a vibrant and sustainable local economy while respecting, protecting and celebrating the distinctive character, heritage and natural features of our marine and coastal area."
Georgina Reid from the Solway Firth Partnerhip's SMILE project will be delivering a talk on the work of the Partnership with a particular emphasis on the SMILE project.
The aim of the Solway Marine Information, Learning and Environment (SMILE) Project is to update the 1996 'State of the Solway Review', using innovative communication methods to gather pan-estuary information, learn from stakeholders and promote a better understanding of the Solway Firth ecosystem. The update is required in the light of new demands made on the estuary's resources and in the context of marine planning. The Review will provide some of the evidence by which a sustainable approach to planning and management may be achieved; thereby helping to deliver the ecosystem based marine planning frameworks developed for the Solway. The SMILE Project is a EMFF funded project running until the end of 2020.
Cost £3 per person (payable on the door, no need to book).
For questions and enquiries, please contact Judith on 01461 700021 or email: manager@devilsporridge.org.uk

Rab has also promised to bring along his guitar to add to the evening’s entertainments. Should be a great night out.

musicThu 6 FebChamber Notes with Marianne Thorsen
19:30-21:30 @ Crichton Church, The Crichton, Dumfries DG1 4ZZ
Programme:
Felix Mendelssohn - String Octet in E-flat major
George Enescu - Octet for Strings in C major
Although written for just eight instruments, both of these sophisticated works have the drama, richness and depth of a full-blown symphony. They also make for an excellently contrasting pair. From Mendelssohn's exuberant opening bars, we're swept through music that is impressively complex yet captivatingly, joyously melodic throughout, whilst Enescu's is moody, breathlessly dramatic, and, in parts, simply volcanic.
Guest directed by Marianne Thorsen - a passionate chamber musician - SE will explore the specific charm of seeing a small group of musicians performing live. With fewer instruments, the fabric of the music becomes more tangible, subtle shifts in mood may have a new-found presence, and pieces you think you know well might offer surprising new colours when heard live. With fewer musicians, it's easier to follow each individual path and witness the beautiful alchemy of eight artists creating something together.
Norwegian violinist Marianne Thorsen is an acclaimed soloist and passionate chamber musician. Former leader of the Nash Ensemble, she regularly performs with Norway's Trondheim Soloists, one of the founding ensembles of The Bridge network and festival.
