CONTEMPORARY artwork is coming in from the country for a guest appearance in Peebles.

Local artist Mooie Scott is bringing her new exhibition ‘Outline’ to the Tweeddale Gallery in May.

The series of paintings takes being inspired by the landscape to a whole new level.

The canvases have been laid out on murky tracks, in burns and woodlands over several weeks or months, to become saturated and immersed in the terrain.

As a result, the environment is printed directly onto each canvas.

And the marks act as a template onto which painting, drawing and collage then evolve.

Mooie began her art journey when she studied at the Chelsea School of Art in London.

Over the years, her work has been exhibited in various venues across Scotland.

The exhibitions have included artwork made from soil, peat, tar, rubbish and vegetation.

The Tweeddale Gallery will host the ‘Outline’ exhibition from May 25,thanks to the charity Live Borders.

Phoebe Stewart, Assistant Curator, Live Borders Museum and Galleries commented: “We are thrilled to be showcasing Mooie Scott’s artwork.

“Her work focuses on the workings of nature which lends itself so well to the beautiful Tweeddale Gallery.

“As a charity, we want to help make lives healthier, happier and stronger, which Mooie’s work definitely inspires.”

Visitors can set eyes on Mooie’s exhibition from May 25 to July 6.

Tweeddale Museum and Gallery are open Monday to Saturday.

Admission to the gallery is free, but donations are welcomed.
