LAUDER artist Diane Mitchell teams up again with photographer Kevin O’Brien to present an exhibition in Galashiels, focusing on the beauty of the Borders landscape.

Borderlands opens on Saturday in Old Gala House and features paintings by Diane and images from Kevin.

The duo combined earlier this year for the Making Waves exhibition in Eyemouth.

Diane, originally from Cheshire, has lived and worked in the Borders since 1972. Formerly an assistant adviser for art with Scottish Borders Council, she has continued to paint and has hosted exhibitions in the south of France, Edinburgh and the Borders.

She said: “Seasonal colour and ever-changing light have been the focus of the paintings on show.

“Several depict the Eildons – the iconic hills that dominate the central Borders. Paul Cezanne had Mont St Victoire, while I have the Eildons!”

Borderlands is open until October 29 and admission is free.
