'Still' time to explore the link between local landscape and culture

Wednesday, 24 August, 2022

Local people and visitors alike are being invited to explore culture and the natural environment as part of a new exhibition.Still Life exhibition

'Still Life' by Rachel Mimiec is on at the Lillie Art Gallery in Milngavie from 3 September to 3 November 2022. There will be a preview from 2.30-4.30pm on Saturday 3 September.

Many will recognise the artist's 'Scholars Rocks', which form part of the Trails and Tales project and are set upon wooden plinths in Milngavie, Torrance and Baldernock.

Rachel's new exhibition is formed from reflections upon artefacts within the cultural landscape - taking inspiration from Allander Ware ceramics and the environment from which these were created.

Engaging with selected ceramics from the Lillie Art Gallery's permanent collection, the exhibition offers visitors an immersive experience which considers how we interact with what we take from the land and how our cultural growth impacts upon the natural environment.

Jim Neill, Chair of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust, said, "I hope people enjoy this fascinating and thought-provoking new exhibition at the Lillie. We're delighted to be able to offer such high-quality cultural opportunities at our venues."

Rachel will be giving a public talk about the exhibition on Saturday 17 September from 2.30pm at the Lillie.

The Lillie Art Gallery, Station Road, Milngavie, G62 8BZ, is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-1pm (apart from Wednesday) and 2pm-5pm (closed Sunday, Monday and Wednesday morning).
