Dunscore and Dalbeattie GP Surgeries
Building on the success of Healing Spaces for Midpark Acute Mental Health Hospital and the therapeutic art and design programme for Lochfield Road, Wide Open was commissioned by NHS Dumfries & Galloway to work with staff and the community to develop a strategy and commissions for integrated artworks for the medical practices in Dalbeattie and Dunscore.
The concept for the proposed commissioned artworks is the local natural and village environment. This approach recognises the importance of placemaking, proposing to do so in this context by connecting the new building to the immediate environment and communities through expressing the social and historical context.
Emma Varley and Alyne Jones worked to create a series of integrated works.
