Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland

Virtual December

The society will be mounting another virtual exhibition on the website in the run-up to Christmas, as continuing pandemic restrictions make a gallery show out of the question.

So be ready to send in your entries from November 1 - deadline November 27. Two items per member may be sent to the editor. Paintings, drawings, prints and crafts, plus digital art once again, are accepted.

The society cannot handle sales but prices may be shown and any enquiries will be forwarded to the artist concerned. The show will run for at least the month of December.

Meanwhile, some of the the region's galleries have begun to open up again. The Kirkcudbright Galleries are showing a solo exhibition of work by Ewan McClure (who has demonstrated his painterly skills to members).

The exhibition runs until October 31 and is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4.15pm - but you must book a viewing slot in advance. The galleries' cafe has reopened and is open from 10am to 4pm.

Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries has partially reopened and is mounting "Brick by Brick", an exhibition of international LEGO art from October 1 to January 16. It is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm, but advance booking is essential. The cafe and craft shop have also reopened.

Sending in

If you are submitting work for our December online exhibition, don't forget to state title and medium (and price, if required) for each item. There will be no selection process - though work shown in our spring or summer virtual exhibitions is not eligible - and no commission on sales. Photos should be in jpeg or png format. So that your art is shown to the best advantage, please ensure when photographing work that it is evenly lit, is not at an awkward angle to the camera and that reflections on glass are avoided as far as possible. Send to the website editor.
