Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland

Viewed by hundreds

More than 800 visitors viewed the society's two-week spring show at Harbour Cottage Gallery, Kirkcudbright, which ended on Saturday, April 13. Six of the 80 or so works on show were sold plus more than 50 cards.

Pastel pupils

Members practised the techniques of pastel painting under the expert guidance of John Threlfall (below) at Gracefield, Dumfries on May 17.

Sponsored by DAGFAS

The society is a sponsor of this exhibition, the end-of-year show of work by HND students at Dumfries and Galloway College.

Sonder? It's a made-up word meaning, according to Wiktionary.org, "The profound feeling of realising that everyone, including strangers passed in the street, has a life as complex as one's own, which they are constantly living despite one's personal lack of awareness of it."

DAGFAS members are invited to the private view at Gracefield on Friday May 24 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Workshop postponed

The workshop with Bea Last which was scheduled for July 5 has had to be postponed. It has been rearranged for Friday February 7, 2020, at Kirkcudbright Galleries in the mezzanine workshop space. The remaining summer workshop will be with Victor Henderson, exploring water-based media, on June 7; check with programme organiser Jane Howe to see if places are still available.
