Cally Gardens is a long established nursery in an 18th century walled garden containing a vast collection of plants. Michael Wickenden's photographs document his plant hunting expeditions to remote parts of the world. Clare Melinsky illustrates the cover of his mail order catalogue, and shows other plant and garden images in her lino cut prints. Other contributing artists are Lizzie Farey, Jenny Ashmore and Jeremy Carlisle.
The exhibition is nearby at the Mill on the Fleet, a restored 18th century cotton mill in Gatehouse of Fleet, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland DG7 2HS.
11th June - 24th July 2011.
Clare Melinsky's lino-cuts in colour and black and white follow the style of traditional woodcuts. Over the last thirty years her illustrations have been used in advertising, for labels and packaging, and in editorial work for books, magazines and newspapers.
