The CatStrand, New Galloway
New work is on show at The CatStrand in New Galloway including 'abstract' bowls and platters, wall panels and tiles. This is a start of the venue representing some of Dumfries and Galloways craft makers (there is already a variety of Visual Arts Exhibitions in place).
The CatStrand, Dumfries and Galloway’s newest arts and community venue, opened on Friday 21 September 2007 with a ten-day celebration of music, film, theatre, comedy and community events. Programmed and managed by the Glenkens Community & Arts Trust, The CatStrand takes its name from the small stream that ran through, and now under the building. The venue incorporates a number of energy efficient and renewable energy components and has been named as "Scotland's Greenest Arts Venue."
The CatStrand is situated in the heart of New Galloway and is open 10:00am - 4:pm Monday to Saturday and 12:00 noon - 4:00pm Sunday.
