Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland


Members' creative ideas flowed at a workshop on "impressing and expressing" led by artist and educator Brigid Collins (below) at Gracefield, Dumfries on Friday October 5. Brigid showed how to create textured grounds into which natural forms and colour could be incorporated.

The society's autumn-winter programme had kicked off on September 27 with an illustrated survey of contemporary trends in environmental art by Joanna Shennan (right).

Full details of the events programme can be downloaded from the Programme page.

The details are also published in the autumn edition of the society's magazine (which can now be downloaded in pdf format from the Membership page).

Show dates

The society's winter exhibition in the run-up to Christmas will again be at Ottersburn Gallery in Dumfries, from November 22 to December 14. More information in the magazine or on the Programme page.
