Out of the Blue EAFS Events

Two Out of the Blue photographic installations form part of the Environmental Arts Festival Scotland this weekend: 29 and 30 August.



Photographer and visual artist, Colin Tennant, has spent 6 months documenting all aspects of the seafood industry, using compelling images to tell the story of commercial sea fishing in Dumfries and Galloway.


The main body of work is an outdoor exhibition installed at the Moat Brae in the centre of Kirkcudbright which runs until 31 August. The works are displayed on specially designed ‘easels’ made from scallop fishing gear.


Look out for a series of large-scale ‘billboards’ featuring some of these images that have just been erected along the main A75 route to coincide with the opening of the Environmental Arts Festival Scotland. These can be viewed on the stretch of road between Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright heading east to west.


These exhibitions are part of Solway Firth Partnership’s Out of the Blue project which aims to raise awareness and understanding of local sea fisheries and promote locally landed seafood.


The Out of the Blue project has been enabled by funding from D & G Council and the European Fisheries Fund.
