The recognition of pattern in nature has evolutionary value - spot the leopard before it spots you - and its appeal for artists is never out of vogue. Finishing today is Pattern Observation at Gallery 139.

It's a broad category, and a range of visually appealing repetitions feature: Vicki Gerritsen's subtle gouache striations, Jay Muldoon's intricately drawn, quasi-Celtic motifs and Lezlie Tilley's hard-edged, formal cut-outs.

In figurative works such as Andrew Finnie's prints and Bridie Watt's bouquets the en masse impact relies as much on colour as pattern. Almost stealing the show from the stock-room is an early Peter Lankas painting teeming with tropical urban rhythm.
