Nearly forty artists and makers have responded to a challenge from Upland Arts Development CIC to create small-scale artworks for an online exhibition, A Postcard From D&G.
The artworks showcase and celebrate what is special about this large and beautiful rural region, which has been unable to welcome visitors for much of this year. The message of the exhibition is ‘wish you were here’ – and that we really look forward to welcoming visitors back.
The region has a large and vibrant creative community, so the organisers took the opportunity to invite its members – artists and makers – to create paintings, drawings, felt-work, prints and glasswork, to show what a wonderful place the region is to live, work or visit. All the works are a maximum of A5 size, so can easily be bought for delivery by post.
