Plus...the Borders Art Fair is spreading out!  We are delighted to be co-hosting an exhibition of work from the Royal Scottish Academy which will take place at Kelso Town Hall during the weekend.  As part of the exhibition, artist Leena Nammari will be demonstrating the art of etching, with prints available to buy.  There is a free shuttle bus service which will be running between Springwood Park, where the fair takes place, and Kelso Town Centre (Woodmarket bus stop) to encourage our visitors to make the most of this rare opportunity to see work from the RSA's Recognised Collection of National Significance.
