Pits, ponies, people and stories

 

New exhibition is a mine of information

This extensive exhibition includes a reconstruction of a coal mine, recreated scenes of home and working life, plus a wealth of objects and information which has been created as a result of a two year project to involve the community in researching the local mining heritage of South Lanarkshire, backed by Heritage Lottery funding.

The exhibition looks at all aspects of life in mining communities from the harsh working conditions and major tragedies like the Blantyre Pit Disaster, to the social side of being part of a mining village, gala days and brass bands. The exhibition also features films and stories from the volunteers who took part in the Pits, Ponies, People and Stories project giving their memories of working in the mines or being part of mining family.

Specially commissioned banners, produced by local sewing groups, displayed on the walls of the exhibition galleries, acknowledge the part that mining banners played in the identity of collieries and the communities they represented.

The exhibition runs at Low Parks Museum until December 2016 and throughout its showing a number of events and activities linked to the exhibition are planned, including a gala day at the museum Saturday 14th May.

Please call Low Parks Museum 01698 452382 for further information.

Robert H Miller Retrospective 5-28 Aug 2016 10:00am-8:00pm Free East Kilbride Arts Centre

Robert H Miller - Retrospective

 

It was almost ten years ago Raymond Anderson, Arts officer of East Kilbride Art Centre, spotted one of my paintings and asked me, “Who painted that?” He was very surprised to learn not only was I a musician but I could also paint.

I was invited to show my work at the Arts Centre and since have exhibited my work annually in Glasgow.

Bringing some of my favourites back in a retrospective of work it seems right to hold it in the arts centre, the place where it all started for me.

This exhibition will include work from the past ten years with maybe one or two surprises thrown in for fun. I will be showing some of my favourite paintings from the past including - ‘The Old Man’ and ‘Marilyn Monroe.’

I’m looking forward to seeing my paintings on show again and fingers crossed, if you manage a visit you will not be disappointed.
