Dozens of artists from around the world join in Cupar Arts Festival
More than 10,000 people are expected to view works from artists from countries including Japan and Italy.
More than 40 artists from around the world have converged on a Fife town for its biannual arts festival.
Attractions at the Cupar Arts Festival include a temporary planeterium, a sculpture made by local schoolchildren in Haugh Park, and an installation in the town’s disused custody cells, all linked by the theme of fate.
More than 10,000 visitors are expected in the town during the 12 days of the festival.
Director Gayle Nelson said that though the event was not on the scale of the Edinburgh festival, it could boast an impressive international reach, with Japan, Taiwan and Italy among the countries represented.
Of the themed approach, she said: “We think it makes it interesting for the artists. It means that everybody’s got a different take on the same thing.
“Also, when you’re placing work in a specific context as they are in Cupar it means that you can see a thread running through the whole programme and people find that interesting.”
