Work from the "Old Hands" series is currently on show at the Smokehouse Gallery in Eyemouth. A fisherman mending a net, a herring lass working with a huge tub of fish are two of the images that use collage, text, and mixed media to bring to life many aspects of fishing life and history. Claire is currently working on further images in the series, and hopes to show these in the summer.
Also new at the Smokehouse for spring is the work of Dunbar-based J.L. Daeschler.
The artist is showing original work and prints from recent painting visits to Eyemouth, St Abbs and Cove. His work will be featured in a documentary on the Glasgow Boys at Cove, presented by Muriel Grey later in the year.
Spring also sees a variety of new work from other gallery artists, along with new jewellery from familiar and new makers.
