Scenes from the gallery

Pictures from the society's winter exhibition at Ottersburn Gallery, in Nith Avenue, Dumfries. Around 80 works were on show in the exhibition, which ended on December 14.

Members' next exhibiting opportunity will be at Harbour Cottage Gallery, Kirkcudbright, from April 27 to May 2.

Next date

The next event in our calendar is an illustrated talk by painter Tom Lindsay, at Gracefield, Dumfries, on Friday January 24 at 11am. Tom, who had a major show at Gracefield in 2019, bases his work on the natural environment and likes to work out of doors. His paintings are about "love of paint and surface, and not illusion", he says.
