The arts site for south west Scotland


Freedom of expression was the theme of the final workshop of the spring programme, led by Victor Henderson (above) at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries, on June 7. Participants were encouraged to experiment with water-based media and to collage elements torn from other works to form something new.

There was to have been a further workshop in the programme, but this has had to be postponed. See below.

Pastel pupils

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

Not long now...

...before annual show time. Handing-in day is Saturday June 29 from 11am to 1pm, at Gracefield. This year, the preview evening - 7pm to 9pm on Friday July 5 - will be in the form of a social get-together rather than a formal opening.

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.
