Victor Henderson demonstrates his watercolour technique to members
at his Drumlanrig Castle studio on June 26th. This was the second of the
society's summer workshops. The first was led by Pamela Grace at
Broughton House, Kirkcudbright. Places are still available for John
Threlfall's workshop on July 24th. Below: Moving On - Wigtown Bay,
one of John's pastels.
Artistry with words
Marjorie Lotfi Gill (right) is the Spring Fling open studios event's first writer in residence. She visited a number of studio locations over the Spring Fling weekend (May 23rd to 25th), writing in response to the artwork she saw.
Marjorie, a poet based in Edinburgh, encouraged others to write alongside her, and some contributions were inspired by the work of DAGFAS members, such as Lisa Hooper and Evelyn Gray. Some of the best submissions will be read at the 2015 Wigtown Book Festival.
