Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland


We set a challenge, to create a) a still life incorporating an animal or bird representation of some kind (not live); b) a view from the window; or c) a self-portrait. Here are some of the responses. Not everyone followed the brief exactly but the results were worth showing anyway. In addition, we've included a selection of other artwork done during lockdown and sent in by members. Thank you to everyone for some great results! This display will run as a slideshow, or you can click on a thumbnail to enlarge, click on right or left side for next or previous image.
