A new exhibition is currently showing in the Waterfall Gallery at Hawick Museum.

The show displays watercolours and pastel works depicting the landscapes of the Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands by Arthur Martin, and landscapes and townscapes of the Borders, Ireland and France by Peter Mabey.

Arthur Martin superbly captures the atmosphere of the beautiful seascapes of the Cromarty Firth. His use of pastel and watercolour have captured fleeting moments, when the weather and the light have lent a special atmosphere to a scene.

Peter Mabey’s colourful and well-composed watercolours - from streets in Melrose and Selkirk to Cassis harbour in the south of France - have a strong sense of the moment and yet a timeless quality.

Showing now until Sunday 28 July, Mon-Fri 10am-12pm and 1-5, Saturday and Sunday 2-5pm.

Waterfall Gallery, First Floor, Hawick Museum. Admission is free.
