Ayr Sketch Club Annual Exhibition
Maclaurin Art Gallery
Sunday 15 July - Sunday 5 August 2018
Mark Fairlie, the hanger in chief at the Maclaurin and Rozelle galleries, hanging the Ayr Sketch Club annual exhibition that opens on Sunday 15 July.
Visitors to Rozelle Park are fascinated by this intricately carved tree trunk. Its a trunk with a story. It is the remaining part of a magnificent cedar of Lebanon that graced the front of Rozelle House and the Maclaurin Gallery for as long as anyone can remember, as the tree is possibly two hundred years old.
Sadly a winter storm blew such a large branch of the tree down that tree experts decided that, as the old tree had been propped and held together for so many years, it was no longer safe. Rather than taking it down to the ground it was decided to save as much of the stump as possible and the carvings of the interesting figures and faces - done by the sculptors who fashioned the WW1 soldiers - are the result. These have an enduring fascination for visitors of all ages.
