In June 2015 a Collective of local, Dumfries and Galloway based artists and healer joined together to open our first Pop Up Shop. We took over the disused shop space at 67 St Marys Street Kirkcudbright on a temporary basis and we still trade from there 7 days a week. We provide much needed selling and exhibiting opportunities for artists throughout our region, with a healing room in the back used by shamanic healer and reiki master, Robert Plotzke. We have just opened our newest Pop Up Shop at the Mill on the Fleet, Gatehouse of Fleet from May-September 2016 and plan to Pop Up at the Wigtown Book Festival Sep/Oct 2016. Importantly, we take no commission on artists sales with every penny going straight to the artist. We operate democratically with all costs shared equally amongst the Collective. New projects are planned for 2017 including workshops, emerging artists and different locations.
