The artwork has been named Kelton, after the parish’s strong agricultural history, as well as being a nod to the National Trust for Scotland’s Threave Landscape Restoration Project at Kelton Mains Farm.

Kelton can be seen at a variety of locations and events including: The Tour Series and Castle Douglas Bike and Food Festival (August 12-15), Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities (from 16 August), Crawick Multiverse (August 28-29), and Wigtown Book Festival (Septmber 22-October 4).
