Background info: The Moffat Gallery is a new contemporary artspace, formerly a builder's yard and early 18th cottage near the town centre. The gallery building and pend lead through into a gravel display space and garden featuring an engraved Caithness granite circular pavement by gallery founder Elizabeth Roberts. The Moffat pavement, appropriately for a town whose emblem is a ram, is engraved with the first lines of a sonnet by the 16th century French poet Joachim du Bellay refering to Ulysses and the Golden Fleece* and forms the centrepiece of a garden being made by Dawa Sherpa and Janet Wheatcroft of Craigieburn Garden, Moffat. The inaugural exhibition to be opened by Richard Demarco 12-2pm on Fri May 25 2012 is Paths - suite of 12 black and white photographs by Jennifer Gough-Cooper of Ian Hamilton Finlay's garden at Little Sparta.
