It all started with an ambitious idea, backed by our artists, makers and supporters.

In August 2013, our ‘Going National’ Kickstarter Crowd Funding campaign successfully raised over £3000 from 79 backers from around the UK. Over 20 artists and makers in Dumfries & Galloway donated their work as pledges for the campaign.

This was the start of a long journey for us to take quality contemporary art and craft outside of Dumfries & Galloway...

In 2014 and 2015, we worked with partners from cutting edge contemporary art venues to established commercial galleries, these included:

The Lighthouse, Glasgow (2014)

The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle (2014)

James Harvery British Art, London (2014)

Green Hill Gallery, Berlin (2015)

The Fine Art Society, Edinburgh (2015)
