Covid art hunt is on!

ART made by people in the region throughout the coronavirus crisis is being sought for a new community exhibition.

The Stove Network are giving people in Dumfries and Galloway a chance to showcase their lockdown creations at a month-long community art show at the social enterprise’s town cente café.

Paintings, photographs, drawings, sculptures, collages and everything in-between created by local people over the past 14 months will be considered for inclusion in the exhibition, which will be open to the public from 2-30 June.

Submissions are being accepted at the Stove Café from now until Monday, May 31.

Pieces will be chosen by taking into account the variety of the exhibition as a whole, ensuring that a mix of content and techniques go on display. Submissions can be 2D or 3D and must measure no more than 60 cm in any direction. Furthermore, as all artworks will be displayed in a public café, they should be suitable for all ages to see.

Work can be dropped off during the Stove Café’s regular opening hours from Wednesday to Saturday between 10 am and 3 pm.

It is requested that entrants include contact details alongside their artworks.

Enquiries regarding the project should be sent to [email protected]
