Tucked away in Rozelle Park is Rozelle House Galleries, a beautiful building which contains many beautiful artworks. It is perhaps best known for displaying the series of 54 Alexander Goudie paintings of the fabled Tam O’ Shanter poem.
It would be easy to overlook Rozelle given its close proximity to Alloway and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, but to do so would be a mistake as it contains a wealth of material relating to the life and times of the bard.
Last week, I spent two fruitful days digitising the collection held at Rozelle. All manner of items were encountered, from prints to jugs, and books to bowls! The combination of two and three dimensional items proved fascinating to work with. I’m currently editing the images created, so it’s not possible to preview any yet. However, you can view the full collection with the launch of the newly redeveloped National Burns Collection site.
