Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland

On the cards

It will soon be show time again at Castle Douglas Gallery (below), where members can submit two works without selection. Also, up to 20 cards may be offered for sale at £2 each. Hand-in day is April 24 between 11am and noon.

The details and entry form (to be sent to Kathleen Woods by April 17) can be downloaded from the Programme page.

Entries for the annual exhibition at Gracefield from July 7 to August 4 will be subject to selection by an expert panel as usual


- but even works not selected for the main show can have an airing in a "salon des refusés" exhibition in the cafe.

Before that, we have a range of one-day workshops lined up in May and June, starting with a study of still-life techniques with our president, Davy Brown.

See the Programme page for full information about this and the other workshops.
