MacDiarmid’s Brownsbank will present the work of artists Sandy Moffat and Ruth Nicol with visual realisations of the poetry of Professor Alan Riach in the gallery at the Biggar and Upper Clydesdale Museum. The show will contain the twin themes of Hugh MacDiarmid and the town of Biggar.
A number of outreach events during the course of the event will be held at the venue. These will include the artists meeting with students from Biggar High School Art and English Department, a talk by Alan Riach titled ‘MacDiarmid The Biggar Years’ ‘In Conversation with Sandy Moffat, Ruth Nicol and Alan Riach’ and Alan reading from ‘The Flyting’, the letters from the Scotsman newspaper from Hugh MacDiarmid and Hamish Henderson.
