Artist Ally Wallace makes work about architecture and has been visiting Bonnington Power Station to make drawings and video about this impressive Art Deco building, looking at its architecture and function in relation to the surrounding landscape.

As well as showing his videos on a monitor at Civic House, he will run a minibus to take up to 12 people for an official guided tour of the station, followed by a walk to the nearby dam and Falls of Clyde. Participants will also be given a small book of the artist's drawings.
