Following last year’s exhibition of the same name, Whitehouse Gallery in Kirkcudbright is showing Canvas & Clay II, focusing solely on paintings and pottery and finding harmony between the two media. Newcomers include painter and ceramicist Ian McWhinnie, whose work features anonymous figures, Angelo Murphy, whose still-lifes are a nod to the Baroque painters of the 17th century but with a more contemporary twist, and Jan Munro, who combines colours, shapes and mark-making to create semi-representational works which look beyond reality.

Returning artists include Ben Brotherton and June Bell with striking new figurative paintings, Suzanne Stuart Davies, whose abstract paintings are interpretations of her surrounding landscapes, award-winning children’s illustrator Catherine Rayner, and Ann Armstrong with a collection of Scottish landscapes.

There are also new collections of ceramics by a range of potters, Julian Francis, whose work is pictured.
