Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The show goes on

virtual show

The society's virtual winter show has been viewed at least 400 times so far and is still there to enjoy - just click on this image or the Gallery link above to view nearly 50 works by 26 members.


Our chairman, Kathleen Woods, writes:.

"Thank you to all our members who have contributed. Tell all your friends and family to have a look and enjoy viewing as much as I have.

"I hope you have all kept safe and well and wish you all a Happy New Year."

We hope it will be possible to return to showing in an actual gallery once more in the spring - the society has booked the Harbour Cottage Gallery in Kirkcudbright from April 18 to May 1 in anticipation.

Sadly, coronavirus restrictions have forced the closure of Gracefield Arts Centre and Kirkcudbright Galleries - and all Dumfries and Galloway museums and galleries - until the situation eases.

Jane Howe

Fellow DAGFAS council members have been paying tribute to Jane Howe, who has died suddenly. Jane was an accomplished artist and an enthusiastic member of the society, taking on the role of programme organiser. "Jane's vibrancy, cheerfulness and positive¬†attitude will be greatly missed"..."A very warm and committed person. And I loved her art"..."This is terribly sad news. Jane was such a good artist and a good person, who did a great deal for the society"..."It is so sad that a talented and enthusiastic person’s life ended so abruptly"..."She will be sadly missed".
