The Art House Gallery in Kelso hosted the first Scottish exhibition for artist Graham Short, famous for engraving The Lord’s Prayer on top of a gold pin head.

This was the first time that the piece has been seen by the public – and the 12 pieces available at the exhibition were sold within two minutes.

A delighted Graham commented: “I am blown away by the event, the stunning gallery and also the warm welcome from the people of Kelso. This exhibition is the best I have ever been involved in, even better than my exhibition in Mayfair’s Clarendon Gallery.

Art House owner Tony Huggins-Haig said Graham’s work is attracting interest from Russia, USA, the Middle East and India. Graham’s next exhibition is in Los Angeles towards the end of the year.
