Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland

Final week

This is the last week of our centenary year show at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries, which started on Saturday July 2 and ends on August 20.

The main exhibition space in the old building at Gracefield. The show fills four other rooms and extends into the cafe.

It is also the last week of the companion show Centennial, 100 years of art from the Gracefield permanent collection, curated by artist, writer and broiadcaster Lachlan Goudie. This includes work by founding members of the society, including Chris Fergusson. A major exhibition of her work and of her daughter Nan Fergusson will open at Harbour Cottage Gallery, Kirkcudbright, on August 29.

While at Gracefield you can pick up one of our centenary commemorative mugs and/or some of our special edition cards illustrated by Bella Green, Hazel Campbell, Caroline Hone and Maureen Edgar.
