Whats On

Tending the Light – Concursum

From Tuesday 24th to Saturday the 28th
The Bakers Oven. Next to Midsteeple, Dumfries
10am – 4pm

 

 

 

Concursum is an association of three alternative photography practitioners and artists, Laura Rhiannon Peters, Andrew Billington and Patrick Ballanger. They mainly specialise in a demanding and often temperamental 19th century process called Wet Plate Collodion which requires the pictures to be developed there and then. The process will be used to make unique image objects called tintypes. They will be based at the Bakers Oven from Tuesday 24th of January and the pictures they take will start to appear in the windows of the town centre soon after that. Come along and have your portrait taken!

Delight – Kate Drummond and Hannah Fox

Sun 22nd January at the Big Burns Procession & Sat 28th January after dark
Queensbury Square, Dumfries

 

 

 

 

Delight is a two-woman participatory performance and installation set within a converted vintage ice cream van. An enchanting spectacle, Delight invites participation on an intimate level – but can be appreciated equally from afar. The piece is made for family audiences, and plays to groups of 20-25 every 15 minutes throughout the evening
