Sales up

The "On the Road" exhibition at Castle Douglas ended on Saturday June 25.

Visitor numbers were high and seven of the 80 exhibits on show were sold. This compares with four sales at the same event last year, from fewer than 50 exhibits.

Wading in

Phil McMenemy sets up his camera in the Kenick Burn near Laurieston to capture an image of something in the water that has fired his imagination. Phil was leading a party of members on the society's final workshop of the summer programme. More workshop pictures on the Programme page.

Frames to go

A number of picture frames given to the society as surplus to a member's requirements were disposed of during the Castle Douglas exhibition, in return for donations to charity. It is hoped to display the remaining frames at a future event (but not the annual exhibition). Meanwhile, enquiries to the secretary, Carol Reece.


The society's 89th annual exhibition starts at Gracefield, Dumfries, on July 16.
