Artist Ally Wallace has spoken to The Buteman about the exhibition of his work which will take place at Rothesay Pavilion this weekend.

The two-day show, Seaside Modernity, features drawings, sculpture and a video based on a year of Ally’s visits to the Pavilion, and showcases both the architectural features of the building and the activities which take place within it.

“If I was an architectural purist I might be very disappointed at some of the things which have been done over the years which weren’t sympathetic to the original architecture,” Ally said.

“But that doesn’t bother me. I’m not coming at it from a purist’s point of view at all. I’m actually really interested in the whole package of the Pavilion - both the architecture and what goes on inside.”

* Seaside Modernity is at the Rothesay Pavilion cafe this Saturday and Sunday, May 30 and 31, from 12 noon until 5pm. You can read our interview with Ally Wallace in full in the May 29 issue of The Buteman - on sale now.
