2017 has been designated as the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology by EventScotland, and as such Falkirk Community Trust has planned a series of events and activities based on Falkirk’s heritage. From the mid-18th century to the late 20th, life and work in Falkirk depended on horses for transport, deliveries, military activity, law and order and industrial power. Falkirk was the hub of the lowland canal network and the barge-pulling horses that drove the economy were omnipresent.
The Park Gallery is delighted to be showing WORKHORSE, The Clydesdales of Flanders Moss by Michael Prince to mark this special year.
Michael Prince is a television producer, director, filmmaker and landscape photographer. He is based in Stirlingshire, on the edge of Scotland’s beautiful Trossachs National Park. Michael has been photographing the Clydesdales at Flanders Moss, Stirling, since 2013. He wanted to tell their story and give a real sense of where and how they live throughout the seasons. The result is intimate portraits that reveal the characters of these majestic animals and has allowed the story of the Clydesdales to naturally evolve into one where creature BECOMES landscape.
The exhibition opens on Sat 8 July and runs through until Sun 15 October with free admission. The Park Gallery is open Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm. Closed Tuesdays.
