Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

The arts site for south west Scotland

Annual show under way

The society's 91st annual exhibition was declared open on Friday July 6 by Derek Crichton, director of Dumfries and Galloway Council's communities department, pictured below with DAGFAS chairman Kathleen Woods.

The exhibition, at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries, attracted fewer entries than usual, but preview night viewers (below) agreed that less-crowded wall space showed the selected art works to better advantage.

Another preview-night scene, with council member Alan Hawker helping to dispense refreshment, in the drawings room. Below: appraising a section of the watercolours display.

• This year's selection panel consisted of Jane Howe, Helen Acklam, Patricia Cain, Gracefield administrator Dawn Henderby, and Pen Symonds. DAGFAS members arranged the chosen works, which were then hung by Gracefield staff.
