The Flanders Moss Art Gallery is now open

Flanders Moss NNR

The bog gallery is now open. There are very few places where art is exhibited so close to the things that inspired it. But for the next week or so Flanders Moss is one of them. P1060583P1060567

The pictures that has come out of the Flanders Moss Under the Microscope project have now been hung. So if you visit the Moss pick up an explanatory leaflet as you enter the site and then take you time perusing the amazing art work in frames around the boardwalk and on display boards in the base of the tower. All the pictures are of bog plants and are the result of  children from Port of Menteith and Thornhill Primary schools and McLaren High spending hours on the bog and in the classroom capturing the beauty of these plants. Botanical illustrator Jessica Langford has done a great job of channeling the pupils enthusiasm and the colours and vibrancy of the artwork make it well worth a visit.

And there are more artworks from the same project at West Moss-side farm, just to the north of Flanders and another stop (no. 37) of the Forth Valley Art Beat trail – locations and more info here.
