Yesterday work continued on getting No. 1 Tower Street, Selkirk prepared. Keith Alexander was joined by Lawrence Robertson of Selkirk Regeneration Company (thank you!) who have taken on the ownership of No. 1 described as ‘…the derelict shop at the foot of Tower Street. The windows have now been repaired, and we are seeking funding to renovate the inside. The long-term vision is for it to be useful community resource.’
Casting the Net artist, Natasha Smith, came in with some of her work to try out in the space so we could see how it looked in the light. No. 1 is looking dazzling with its fresh coat of white paint and there has been alot of interest from people passing and looking into the shop.
Some snaps of Natasha’s work before is it exhibited, beautifully carved into pieces of slate and sandstone. Please look at her website at http://natashastonecarving.co.uk for more of her work and have a look on our artists page to read more about Natasha’s approach to Casting the Net.
