Duns Castle hosts art exhibition

Duns Castle will host its  annual exhibition with a top line-up of local artists . Organiser Caroline Hay of Art Amatoria is looking forward to welcoming a host of talented individuals to the grounds of the famous local landscape.
Amongst the number is the talented Earlston teenager William Foyle, who is taking part in one of his first exhibitions.
William uses thick layers of paint to create vibrant and slightly abstracted landscapes, inspired by the Borders and visits to Ireland, and his large canvases are certain to be a talking point.
Berwick’s Kate Philp is a hugely successful landscape artist, and Caroline is thrilled to have some of her new work on show as well as her ever popular prints.
Angela and Brunton Hunter, a couple from Innerleithen, share a studio but work in completely different media, with Angela favouring bronze resin to create wildlife sculptures and Brunton focussing on marble.
The exhibition will also feature two very different wildlife artists in the form of Cornhill’s Claire Weeks and Susan Mitchell, whose lively watercolours are always popular.
Another painter on show is Douglas Davies, a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour.
