Arts and Crafts


    Dumfries and Galloway Arts Association (DGAA) provide a project development and management service to enable the successful integration of the work of artists, craft makers and designers into the external environment.

    The DGAA have secured significant additional funding to commission artists over the past five years, in order to make work that enhances the Galloway Forest Park and the region's sense of place and cultural identity.

    Projects have included:

    Striding Arches
    A greatly avant-garde, artist-led project which celebrates and interprets a little known area of Dumfries & Galloway in south-west Scotland. Andy Goldsworthy’s red sandstone arches ‘stride’ around the natural amphitheatre that is Cairnhead, deep in the heart of the Southern Uplands. In amidst the glen, another arch springs from a disused farm building, The Byre, creating a place that is both sculpture and shelter.

    Voices from Glentrool & Merrick
    A striking portfolio of prints and poems inspired by the landscape and people of the Glentrool and Merrick area by local artist Silvana McLean from Moniaive and Mary Smith.

    Galloway Forest Park Art programme
    Funded in part by the Forest Enterprise, the Art Programme features monumental sculptural installations at various locations in the forest park.
