Artist’s view of Rule Water

Hawick Art Club are continuing their 80th celebrations today when Laura Blackwood will be talking on her illustrated book, The Rule Water Valley through the Seasons.

Based at Bedrule, Laura has been working on her book for four years and has more that 60 illustrations, which were on show in the Scott Gallery in Hawick in 2009 and attracted many visitors. The meeting will be in Hawick High School at 7.30pm – visitors £3 and tea and coffee provided.

The art club will be going on their annual outing on Thursday, May 5, to Laura and her husband Simon’s studio and gardens.

Transport will be provided, leaving from Hawick Haugh. Members are asked to phone Eliz on 01450 372511 if they wish to add their names to the list or for more information. Those attending are advised to take a picnic lunch and a chair.

Hawick Art Club’s AGM will be held on June 16.
