Cumnock's Baird Institute is currently hosting an exhibition to show off the talents of local artists.

The venue, on Lugar Street, will feature the exhibition right through until January 20, 2024.

This showcase of local talent is an opportunity for artists to platform their work for visitors who can see a wide variety of artist mediums and practises on display, including painting, textiles, ceramics digital art and photography.

Much of the work references the surrounding environment and is inspired by both natural and manmade aspects of the landscape.

School groups and groups are welcome by appointment, with free admission.

The Baird Institute is open on Thursday from 12.30pm until 4.40pm and then from 5pm until 8pm, Friday from 10am until 4pm and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
