Events at Thirlestane Castle

‘Theoretical Sharpness’ Exhibition

‘Theoretical Sharpness’ Exhibition

From Monday 5th August 2019

We are delighted to showcase a new photography exhibition featuring works by the 14th Earl of Lauderdale, curated by Sam Cornwell. The exhibition will be displayed in our brand new event space, the 'Vaulted Cellars' at Thirlestane Castle.

The exhibition will showcase some of the early printing techniques used by this prolific photographer at the turn of the last century as well as pre-Photoshop examples of edited images.

As well as never before seen images there will also be a selection of his more vernacular work to give audiences a taster of the Earl’s broad range of photographic skills.

The exhibition will be open from 10am daily and is included in the normal admission to the castle.

It is part of the Borders Art Map with two other exhibitions taking place within the Borders at the start of August.
