ARTISTS working in a multitude of mediums will exhibit their works at this year’s Spring Fling in Dumfries, exploring themes ranging from atomic Armageddon to the essence of human beauty.

Spring Fling, at 86 venues across Dumfries and Galloway, is split into recommended colour-coded routes which take visitors round different parts of the region. Joanna Macaulay, events and exhibitions manager for Upland which runs Spring Fling, said: “One of the great things about it is the incredible variety it offers. There are traditional landscape painters, through to edgy contemporary artists and the makers of beautiful jewellery, clothes and ceramics.”
