James Winnett 6 - 30 Nov 2014 10:00am - 8:00pm Free admission East Kilbride Arts Centre
Glasgow based artist James Winnett presents an exhibition of new works developed as part of his residency at the Forestry Commission's Cuningar Loop site to the north of Rutherglen town centre on the banks of the river Clyde. By collecting and transforming artefacts from the site James explores the complex character of a place that has been shaped by multiple natural and social processes and reflects on its most recent transformation into a 15 hectare woodland park set to open in the spring of 2015.
The residency is being hosted by Forestry Commission Scotland and has been supported by Creative Scotland as part of the Year of Natural Scotland.
