Dark Skies Exhibition in Dumfries and Galloway Life Magazine

Our forthcoming exhibition is featured in the December issue of Dumfries and Galloway Life magazine. The article focuses on the 'Dark Skies' part of the show.

Makers have created work specially for the exhibition, to celebrate Galloway's Dark Sky Park - the first in the UK. The magazine chose to show a vase by Christine Smith. It depicts one of the star gazers who come here to look at the stars and planets because the Galloway Forest has so little light pollution.

I've had a preview of some of the pieces and they are just brilliant.

Our exhibition in December coincides with two significant events in the skies  above us - a Geminids Meteor Shower and a very rare Total Lunar Eclipse.
