Museums and Galleries Programme 2018/2019

Museums & Galleries Programme 2018/19

This year’s Museums & Galleries programme brings together a fantastic mix of exhibitions, events and workshops from our Live Borders Curatorial Team.

Our visual arts programme showcases paintings from our own Fine Art Collection as well as a wide range of work by contemporary artists, including local artsits such as Claire Beattie and Adrian McCurdy, as well as work from further afield, including the world famous Scottish painter Jack Vettriano and Australian artist Kate Scardifield.

All of our exhibitions encourage exploration and discovery, and the team has worked hard to develop a plethora of exhibitions and events this year, each one picked to appeal to a wide range of visitors.  Many of our programmes celebrate the unique cultural heritage of the Scottish Borders, from the history of twinsets in Hawick to Peebles in the Swinging Sixities. National events and anniversaries are also covered with exhibitions such as ‘Hosts and Champions: Scotland in the Commonwealth Games’ at both Hawick Museum and Coldstream Museum and various exhibitions and events in all venues to commemorate the end of World War I. We hope that there is something for everyone.
