31 March - 11 May 2014Replenished with debris twice a day, the strandline marks the turning point of the last high tide and provides endless material for the curious beachcomber.
To open the 2014 season we have this new exhibition from the Solway Firth Partnership looking at the challenging environment between the low and high tide marks, and the plants and animals which have evolved to live there.
With over 200 miles of coastline the north Solway is richly endowed with interesting places to explore from muddy estuaries to sandy coves, rocky headlands to stony beaches. If you take the time to explore this varied coastline you will discover something new every step of the way. It is here that the sea deposits seaweeds and creatures torn up from below the waves as well as debris washed down from rivers or washed off storm-tossed ships. Often several strandlines can be seen on the same beach, each one a strange combination of objects sorted and deposited by the sea.

and poet, Fiona Russell.
For each individual, this has meant engagement with a particular geographic location: a short fast river and its catchment areas and tributaries, from the uplands around Loch Urr, through the woodland gorges beyond Corsock and the fertile grasslands around Haugh of Urr, to the meanders which pass around the old harbours of Dalbeattie and Palnackie, out to the tidal estuary and Kippford and Rockcliffe, fishing villages transformed by visitors and sailing boats, to the estuary, islands, and the grandeur of the Solway Firth.
