Catchment

31 March - 6 May 2014

 poems
from an observer’s journey
along the Water of Urr
from moor to shore

catchment is the result of an exploration of the Water of Urr in Galloway, over a period of two years, by four visual artists

Jennie Ashmore    
Malcolm Davies
Suzanne Stuart Davies    
Julian Francis        

and poet, Fiona Russell.

 

For each individual, this has meant engagement with a particular geographic location: a short fast river and its catchment areas and tributaries, from the uplands around Loch Urr, through the woodland gorges beyond Corsock and the fertile grasslands around Haugh of Urr, to the meanders which pass around the old harbours of Dalbeattie and Palnackie, out to the tidal estuary and Kippford and Rockcliffe, fishing villages transformed by visitors and sailing boats, to the estuary, islands, and the grandeur of the Solway Firth.
