Pic­tur­ing Scot­land’s water­ways

Canal Boat - - News -

SCOT­TISH CANALS’ Artist-in-res­i­dence Les­ley Banks is pic­tured at the Falkirk Wheel, the sub­ject of one of her paint­ings in an art ex­hi­bi­tion called Gon­goo­zler which aims to “cel­e­brate the en­vi­ron­ments and sto­ries of Scot­land’s 250-year-old water­ways”. The 40 pic­tures de­pict the Cale­do­nian Canal, Cri­nan Canal and all the low­land water­ways in­clud­ing the re­mains of the aban­doned Mon­k­land Canal as well as the more well-known sights such as the Wheel and the Kelpies. The artist said: “I’ve spent the past year gon­goo­zling, us­ing the tow­paths as a stu­dio and cap­tur­ing some in­cred­i­ble sights on the water­ways through­out chang­ing sea­sons, weather and times of day.” The pic­tures are on dis­play at Falkirk’s Park Gallery un­til 25 June.
