Modern Wilderness

An exhibition by Catherine Coulson at WWT Caerlaverock
Runs until 14th September

An exhibition of paintings inspired by the diverse habitats and nature reserves of Dumfries & Galloway. Landscapes, seascapes and nature studies including framed as well as unframed original work. Landscape and wildlife photographs taken in nature reserves and local areas as well as a new field poetry chapbook ‘Low Lands’ are also available for sale as well as art prints and cards.

Caerlaverock Wetland Centre is situated on the north Solway coast near Dumfries. The 1,400 acre wild reserve is known for its vast flocks of over-wintering water-birds, including up to 40,000 barnacle geese from Arctic Svalbard and large numbers of pink-footed geese and whooper swans. It also provides refuge for rare natterjack toads, ospreys, peregrines, marsh and hen harriers. It has been awarded status as a Dragonfly Hotspot by the British Dragonfly Society (BDS) and now is a great time to see them as well as butterflies in the summer wildflower meadows.

The exhibition can be found in the gallery in the visitor centre, with facilities and lovely fairtrade Coffee Shop.
