This weekend is going to be rather busy.
Last year I teamed up with several other local, professional photographers to form the Galloway Photographic Collective. The idea is we are pooling knowledge, experience and resources to promote our businesses, photography, and this corner of Scotland.
It’s taken a few months and lots of debates and decision making, but we are officially launching this weekend.
On Saturday evening of March 31st, there will be a preview of our joint exhibition at The Catstrand, followed by a talk by internationally renowned photographer, Colin Prior.
The following day is an Open Studio Trail with 4 different venues where the public will be able to view photographs, talk to the photographers and sample their home baking.
It’s all looking to be quite an event.
Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to attend as I had already arranged to be at the Scottish Tattoo Convention in Edinburgh that weekend (see earlier post) taking photos of people with ink-adorned bodies.
However, my photos will be on display at the Catstrand and at the Lock Ken Gallery and Café, where Allan Wright has kindly given me some wall space for the Open Studio Trail.
And if all this wasn’t enough, the WASPS Studio buildings in Kirkcudbright, where Maggie has her studio is also having an open weekend for the public to view and buy art direct from the artists.
So if you're any where near the South West of Scotland this weekend, there's a visual feast to be had.
