‘Still Glory’ exhibition. ‘Faded glory is still glory’ is the theme for the next exhibition at Selkirk’s Burnside gallery & frames.

Scottish artists Catherine Scott and Walter Bernadini present their different, but complementary takes on Scottish landscapes and buildings in the new exhibition from Selkirk’s Burnside Gallery and Frames, ‘Still Glory’. The title itself derives from a comment by Catherine that ‘Faded glory is still glory’, and this theme runs throughout her work, which uses multimedia and watercolour to change the outworn into something new and romantic, and yet with its history still intact. In addition, Edinburgh resident Catherine says of the materials she uses ‘... reworking them into something simultaneously new and old, I’m celebrating their survival over time; imagining and honouring the original makers.’
Walter Bernardini is ninety and still produces very carefully observed paintings. Old buildings have held a fascination for him, since he started work in Glasgow in the 1940s, and after a long career heading a design agency in Ireland he has drawn together a collection for this exhibition. All are places that have personal meaning for him, whether the waterfall, Grey Mare's Tail, Kirkhope Tower in the Ettrick Valley, or the Eildon Hills, and he has depicted them with deep affection.
The gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday 10-1, 2-4.30.
