Nordic by Nature: modern design & print

Glass panel ‘Strata’

5 August – 31 October 2019

Artists and designers have long been inspired by the varied and dramatic landscapes of Nordic countries. This new British Museum touring exhibition explores how nature and landscape is at the heart of post-war Finnish, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian design and prints.

We are delighted to participate in this exciting exhibition at Old Gala House in Galashiels.

The exhibition brings together an eclectic range of pieces, including Swedish prints and glass works alongside experimental and minimalist works from Denmark, including Erik Magnussen’s (1940-2014) revolutionary table wares of the 1960s. Exhibition highlights include pioneering pieces by one of the leading figures in Finnish design, glassmaker Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) and Finnish basket maker, Markku Kosonen (1945-2010).

You are invited to a reception and exhibition opening on Friday 9 August 2019 18.30–20.00

The Walter Scott glass panel trophy ‘On A Clear Day'The Walter Scott glass panel trophy ‘On A Clear Day’

15 June 2019

Congratulations to Robin Robertson who has won the tenth Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction, becoming both the first Scot and the first poet to win the £25,000 Prize in its ten year history.

Accepting the Prize for his book The Long Take from writer Alexander McCall Smith and the Prize’s sponsor the Duke of Buccleuch, Robin Robertson said that, like Walter Scott, he had started as a poet and then moved into narrative fiction ‘by accident’, as The Long Take started as a poem but became something longer.

Lindean Mill Glass - Circus is 21

16 January – 11 April 2019

An exhibition in collaboration with twenty-one artists,
Contemporary Applied Arts and jaggedart

Circus is 21: A Celebration of Collaboration features artists who have exhibited with Circus in the past, and some who are showing here for the very first time. The artists are young, and not so young; this is their first career; this is their third. They are accomplished and expert. They do not shy away from complexity, but work to resolve idea and technique. They transport us to another realm, and gift perspective to help us reach resolutions of our own. Many of the artists are represented by two of long term collaborators – Contemporary Applied Arts and jaggedart.

For more information about the exhibition, please visit www.circuslondon.com.

The Circus gallery is open Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm
