As this East Lothian venue is surrounded by spectacular coastline scenery it is appropriate that it should be a landscape show. New Horizons convenes four of Scotland’s finest landscapists, each of whom, over their distinguished careers, has developed a particular approach to different types of landscape subject matter. The show will feature James Morrison’s dramatic panoramas, George Devlin’s evocative impressions, Gordon Bryce’s inspiring vistas and Duncan Shanks’ expressionist eulogies to the Clyde valley. BH Glorious Kestle Barton has opened for its summer season and, situated only five minutes from 'Frenchman's Creek' on the Helford estuary, has taken this as its subject for an exhibition created to chime with the nearby Daphne Du Maurier festival. Inviting artists to chart their responses both to the Du Maurier novel and the area in which it is set, landscape and narrative become twin themes while interior and exterior spaces are turned inside out. In the gallery Ian Brown's tantalizingly, atmospheric photographs that seemingly search an elusive figure lost in the landscape contrast with video montage by Bruce Davies that eschews all such romantic connotations creating, with a microscopic lens, an audio-visual diary of his walks around the creek reinterpreting them in abstract, biomorphic terms. Outside, Katie Etheridge's performance piece Land SLIP (scheduled only twice during the show) draws us back to narrative as she invites audiences to become “trespassers in time” and unravel the creek's many mythologies. Peter Fluck's kinetic sculptures are resident through the summer but Rupert White's projection, ghostship , is temporal and transient. Catch what you can, when you can . . . Meanwhile in Penzance, Mounts Bay Contemporary is a gallery that has just opened. Showing work (both art and craft) by less familiar artists some of whom have, up to now, only exhibited abroad, it promises something different. It's a stroll along the promenade to reach but then, what could be better than that? PP BESIDE THE S EA B ruceDavies, ‘The Noble Worm’ at Kestle Barton
