The Patons of Wooers' Alley
 
Exhibition at Fire Station Creative, Dunfermline

Our exhibition at Fire Station Creative in January-February 2023 was a huge success -  many thanks to everyone involved!

 

The exhibition explored how the Patons' childhood home at Wooers' Alley inspired their most important work, including Sir Joseph Noël Paton's fairy paintings, Amelia Robertson (Paton) Hill's statue of Robert the Bruce in Dumfries and Joseph Neil Paton's damask designs. The display featured original art works by Sir Joseph Noël Paton and never before seen historic artefacts from Wooers' Alley Cottage. Alongside the exhibition were a fascinating double-bill lecture by Emily Learmont and Dr Allan Lennie on Sir Joseph Noel Paton, and a talk by George Robertson FSAScot on Amelia Robertson Hill (née Paton) 

UPCOMING LECTURES:

Date TBC - Waller Hugh Paton and David Paton - a talk by Dr Jean Barclay. Further details to follow.
