COAST by Donald Urquhart + Plankton Project

April 2017 at Dunbar Town House


Really pleased to be part of this exhibition with Donald Urquhart. Selected flags will be displayed in the community room of Dunbar Town House Please ring for dates and times: 01620 820699

North Light Arts completed five amazing days in Dunbar Primary School in connection with Donald Urquhart’s public art work for The Battery on Dunbar Harbour. The two incredible artists Linda Greig and Anna Davis from Dunbar worked with the classes for a full day, creatively helping the students learn about and interpret the life of plankton. Linda had sourced some water from the harbour that had tiny specimens of the species of plankton that can be found in the waters around Dunbar.

Plankton is open till 22April

The students then studied the structure of different plankton through observational drawing and later by inventing and naming their own plankton. Traces were then made to take their drawings into mono printing and screen printing with Anna. The results were so good they will be displayed  in the Community Room of Dunbar Town House at the same time as Donald’s exhibition is being held here in March 2017.
