DG Arts Festival - Opening Weekend

This weekend heralds the arrival of this year's Dumfries and Galloway Art's Festival. The festival launch happens on Friday at Easterbrook Hall - RSVP details below.
On Saturday it kicks off properly with Liminal, an exciting new temporary installation on Cardoness Beach, near Gatehouse of Fleet: 

Liminal is an exploration of the temporary nature of the land between the tides, a transitory space permanently caught in a state of change, it’s disorientating and relentless.  Our intention is to explore the ambiguous nature of a place at once transforming, suspended, unstable and absolute.”
Sid Ambrose who is part of the Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival programming group explained why he commissioned the piece, “The Galloway coastline is a 200 mile ribbon of terrain which is neither sea nor land. It’s an extraordinary place of isthmi, skerries, spits, caves, berms, estuaries, dunes and lagoons.  I wanted to engage artists to question this place and to make work that reveals something of its essence.”

From then on, expect an onslaught of all things arty, musical, theatrical - including over 170 artists, 51 Live Events and 31 venues the website has full events listings for the Festival
