The CatStrand features a number of exciting and innovative artworks integral to the fabric of the building which have been funded by grants from The Scottish Arts Council and LEADER+ Dumfries and Galloway.
Kirkcudbright based artist Linda Mallett was Lead Artist on this ambitious programme which showcases contemporary arts and crafts from within Dumfries and Galloway. Works on permanent display have been produced by some of the regions finest artists and makers, including Will Levi Marshall who has created a glass, ceramic and water feature in the Long Gallery and Linda Mallett herself who has worked with local school pupils to produce a ceramic panel at the entrance to the building. Additional works include David Gulland’s glass engraving, Silvy Weatherall’s Black Face Sheep sculpture made out of corrugated iron, and a spectacular landscape triptych by Dalry based photographer, Ted Leeming. A programme of regular, temporary exhibitions will also take place in the Pyramid Gallery. These will feature prominent artists from Dumfries and Galloway and beyond.
