Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland

Art and emotion

The society's season of demonstrations and workshops began on Friday October 12, when Hope London (below) gave a fascinating talk about emotions in painting and drawing, with examples of her own and other artists' work.

Unfortunately, a follow-up workshop with Hope on October 26 had to be cancelled. Although many members expressed an interest in attending, too few were actually free

on the day to make the event viable.

Details of the rest of the autumn/winter programme can be downloaded from the Programme page, along with a workshop booking form.

New venue

Our 2019 spring show will be held in the Harbour Cottage Gallery in Kirkcudbright, from March 31 to April 13. Details of how to enter will be available nearer the time.

Meanwhile, our Christmas show will again be at Ottersburn Gallery in Dumfries, from December 1 to 22.
