5April Dunbar Town House Museum and Gallery 2.00 till 4.00pm| Opening celebration of the exhibition which comprises sculptures and prints that capture the dynamic actions of nature in the process of growth and decay. Most of Emma’s work was made during two residencies in 2012/13, on the Isle of Mull and one in Dunbar where she spent a week in our Beach Hut last summer studying the geology of the John Muir Way. Casts were carefully taken which were then cast in cement provided by the ancient cement works at Oxenwells.
