This year marks 11 years since the opening of the WASPS studio complex at St Mary’s Mill in Selkirk.
WASPS studios can be found across Scotland, and the group are delighted to see that two Glasgow-based WASPS tenants have been nominated as finalists in this year’s prestigious Turner Prize. They currently house 650 artists and 22 arts organisations at 19 buildings across Scotland.
The Spring exhibition is in its fourth year, and has become a popular feature of the Border’s arts calendar. Selkirk WASPS studio hosts many of the Borders’ established artists, who will be exhibiting with a variety of paintings, mixed media and printed textiles.
Participating artists this year are: Colin Philip, Moy Mackay, Joy Parker, Rob Hain, Alex Hain, Alan Richmond, GraceInk Design, John Berry, Ruffled Feathers (Kerry Jones), and Fiona Millar.
Visitors will be able to meet and speak to the artists in the former textile mill. For more information on all exhibiting artists, and directions visit www.selkirkwasps.com or find them on Facebook. The exhibition is free, and a warm welcome is extended to all.
The exhibition runs for one week only, with a preview today (Friday) from 5.30-8.30pm, and then opening tomorrow until Friday May 23, 10am-5pm.
