Stranraer Museum is offering art-based activities for families and children over Easter, to coincide with an exhibition opening next week. Contemporary Scottish Print-making, being seen for the first time, runs until April 28 and showcases the work of 12 artists who use a wide variety of printing techniques and draw on many areas of life for their inspiration. Calum Colvin, for instance, turned to mythical and factual Scottish history for his photographic prints. Jim Pattison uses his experience of kidney dialysis and transplantation in his work. Nicola Murray, who trained as a biologist before turning to art, features science and nature in her prints which are produced using methods dating back 150 years.
