Spring Fling in Brydekirk
by Katie Anderson
It’s that time of year again in D&G, as open studio event fevour kicks off at the end of this month for just three days. For 2015, Studio’s 78 and 79 are in Brydekirk, seeing the first artists exhibiting in the village from my work-in-progress studio. Myself, and jeweller Jo Garner will be sharing the Old Church Hall, or the Sunday School Hall if you’re properly local, before I begin works to change it into my full time studio and residence.
Preview evening takes place on Friday, 22nd of May from 6pm till 8pm. So if you can please join us to celebrate the first public outing of my hall since it changed into my hands last August, and us at our most enthusiastic before the weekend hits properly!
Spring Fling runs Saturday 23rd, Sunday 24th and Monday 25th of May from 10am to 6pm.
As an additional Spring Fling treat, The Stove have teamed up with caterers Scrumptious and artist David Ralston to bring a new project Running on Empty, which will be touring the region during the weekend providing locally made and sourced food. The Running on Empty-mobil will be making it’s final pit stop at The Old Church Hall in Brydekirk from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on Monday 25th of May, please do join us in welcoming Scrumptious to the village and stop by to see what they have on offer.
On show, I’ll have some examples of previous work, including my most recently exhibited work Salt of the Earth (fresh from Berlin and Gracefield in Dumfries…), I’ll be running a drop in workshop, and also looking to gather information and stories about the village, there will be conversations about artists in communities, and there will be cake!
Jo will have a range of her beautiful jewellery on show and be offering some opportunities to get hands on and learn a bit more about her making process.
