Walking Group - week 4: Perth

There were definite signs of spring last week when our walking group arrived in Perth. The sky was blue and South Inch park was awash with crocuses. 

The walk to the museum and art gallery was very pleasant and full of interesting things to see and the light was ideal for making photographs. A short diversion through Greyfriars burial ground revealed many beautifully carved historic gravestones.

On arriving at the museum the very pleasant staff told us that we were welcome to use their lecture hall for eating lunch in before directing us to the exhibitions. All three currently on were excellent with two exhibitions featuring artworks on paper and the third a display of wet-plate collodion photographs.

After lunch, a short walk through the town brought us to the Fergusson Gallery and another exhibition of photography, this time some contemporary work by Janeanne Gilchrist. Finally a look at the work by J D Fergusson in the upstairs gallery before walking back to the station and catching the train back to Glasgow.

A grand day out!
