Spring Fling x Wigtown Book Festival
We are delighted that the Spring Fling x Wigtown Book Festival Residency returned for the 2019/2020 events with Emily Tough as our Artist.
This time the residency was for emerging artists and we changed the outcome from creating an open studio at Spring Fling to a final exhibition. This two-part residency saw Emily engaging with visitors at the Book Festival in 2019, collecting recycled materials and beginning work on her project.
The culmination of this will hopefully be an exhibition in Wigtown during the postponed Spring Fling 2020 later in the year and the unveiling of Emily’s project to create puppets inspired by the people and stories she encountered during Wigtown Book Festival and the town itself.
In the meantime, please enjoy the images below of Emily’s work taken by Jamie Thompson.
