On Friday 1st December, a curated exhibition of work from members of Blueprint100, a local group of emerging artists, will open at The CatStrand Arts Centre in New Galloway.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Aperture’ will feature work from a range of visual artists and will include a specially commissioned piece by an up and coming mixed media artist.

Curator of the exhibition, Emily Cooper, commented: “Having taken part in group shows and curated my own solo exhibitions, I’m very excited to have been given the opportunity to curate this exhibition which will feature some incredible, diverse and vibrant young talent from the area. This will be a valuable opportunity got young people to showcase their work and get a foothold on the local arts scene.”

The exhibition will showcase a vibrant mixture of media and subject, exploring the theme ‘Identity in Place’, and will feature a new commissioned sculptural piece by Emily Cooper inspired by new Galloway Landmarks.
