Rowland’s (Selkirk) Youth Group @ 24-26 West Port – Installation up and looking great!

Rowland’s is very excited to be taking part in the ‘Casting The Net’ exhibition…

Two of Rowland’s windows will be hosting the work of  artist Mark Timmins and two windows hosting a display of work by the young people of Rowland’s.

The young people have decided to create their own ‘fishing net’ out of scoobies and friendship bracelets, catching items and images personal to the young people. The other window is based around a ‘message in a bottle’ – the idea that all the bottles may look the same but each one holds a private message to each young person – written either as a message to their future selves or a message looking back on their youth.

The young people have also made their own digital alphabet, collecting digital images of letters they found in Selkirk. This is displayed in the Dry Bar at Rowland’s.
