Opens 3 February 6 - 8pm
Like his friends and colleagues Richard Long and Hamish Fulton, Roger Ackling belongs to the generation of artists who graduated from St Martins School of Art in the late 1960s challenging traditional notions of sculptural production. Sculpture, they decided, could be anything they wanted it to be: a walk in the Cairngorms; a bicycle ride through France, or in Ackling's case a small piece of wood marked by an invisible ray of light channeled straight from the sun.
4 February - 10 March 2012
Opens 3 February 6 - 8pm
Andrew Miller is a Glasgow based artist working across a variety of media - drawing, sculpture, photography and site-specific installations. Through a process of drawing, altering, transforming and making Miller seeks to gain an understanding of the ambiguity between notions of form and function. He works with the worn and the discarded, and in salvaging, reassembling and re-presenting familiar objects he attempts to ask questions about the way things are placed, valued and used.
17 March - 21 April 2012
Opens 17 March, 12 noon
Alec Finlay is an internationally recognised artist, poet and publisher whose work crosses a range of media and forms, from sculpture and collage, to audio-visual, neon and new technologies. Born in Scotland in 1966 and currently based in Newcastle, England, much of Finlay's work reflects on our interaction with nature and considers how we as a culture, or cultures, relate to landscape.
