Glasgow based artist Ally Wallace makes work about architecture and during the past 12 months has made frequent visits to Netherdale Stadium, Galashiels, to make drawings, sculpture and video about the A-listed, Brutalist concrete grandstand there.

Netherdale is the home of Gala Fairydean Rovers Football Club and Ally's completed artworks will be exhibited as an installation in the club's Board Room at the stadium. In addition to seeing the exhibition, visitors will have an opportunity to look around the grandstand's interior and exterior.

The building was designed by British Modernist architect Peter Womersley and was completed in 1964. Current restorative work being carried out on the stand has meant that the seating area is temporarily inaccessible to visitors but the building's overall dynamic form can be viewed from all around.
