New online exhibition celebrates artists' love of beautiful region

DUMFRIES .- Nearly 40 artists and makers have responded to the challenge to create small-scale artworks for an online exhibition called A Postcard From D&G.

Organised by Upland Arts Development CIC, the idea was for them to come up artworks that showcase and celebrate what’s special about this large and beautiful rural region with its rich pastures, rugged coastline and wild hills and moorland.

Joanna Macaulay, Assistant Director for Upland, said: “For much of this year we’ve been unable to welcome to visitors to Dumfries & Galloway.

“So we came up with the idea of A Postcard From D&G which lets people know that we wish they were here – and that we really look forward to welcoming them back.

“It’s also a region with a large and vibrant creative community – so we also saw this as the perfect moment to invite artists and makers to create pieces that show why this is such a wonderful place to live, work or visit.”

The works, all by members of Upland, are 2D and 3D, and include everything from paintings, drawings and feltwork to original prints and glass.

They are a maximum of A5 in size, so if you like one you can buy it and it can be easily popped in the post.

A sneak preview of some of the pieces includes landscapes by Denise Zygadlo, Hugh Bryden and Ann Smith and an artist’s book by Heather Armstrong.

There will also be glasswork from Amanda Simmons, photography by Alistair Hamilton and Phil McMenemy, ceramics from Doug Fitch and Hannah McAndrew, paintings and prints from Heather and Colin Blanchard, plus birds and landscapes by Lisa Hooper and Rosie Dobson.

The exhibition runs at from 24 August to 6 September.

The Upland artists and makers contributing to the exhibition are: Alison Corfield, Alistair Hamilton, Amanda Simmons, Andy Priestman, Angela Lawrence, Ann Smith, Caroline Hone, Carolyn Richardson, Catherine Coulson, Colin Blanchard, Deborah Campbell, Denise Zygadlo, Doug Fitch, Emily Tough, Gail Kelly, Hannah McAndrew, Hazel Campbell, Heather Armstrong, Heather Blanchard, Heather Davies, Helen Ryman, Helen Walsh, Hugh Bryden, Janet O’Donnell, Jennie Ashmore, Jo Gallant, Julie Hollis, Laura Derby, Lisa Hooper, Lizzie Farey, Pamela Grace, Phil McMenemy, Rosie Dobson, Sarah Keast, Sarah Stewart, Sheena McMaster, Tricia Barna and Val Macadam.
