THE work of 10 artists opens today (Friday) in a new exhibition in Dunbar.

Changing Tides features the work of returning artists Ian McWhinnie, Linda Park, Lynn Howarth, Janet McCrorie and Amanda Phillips.

New to Coast Gallery, on the town’s High Street, are Robert Pereira Hind, Ian Neill, Rebecca Styles, Margaret Kathleen Hume and Marlene Lochhead.

Carol Kelly, gallery director, encouraged people to head along to the exhibition, which runs until January 15 and also encompasses the ‘Small Paintings’ exhibition from December 3.

She said: “From the idiosyncratic to the universal, our exhibition Changing Tides will investigate a wide variety of visual forms – it is excellent in its scope.

“Our hope is to make people think about art and the beauty of nature, and encourage their own creativity – also serving as a reminder of the importance of nature and the preservation of our earth, as a celebration of our place in the world, helping us repair their relationship to the environments that they share with other species and each other.”

The gallery is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
