Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society is one of the oldest art societies in the country and  celebrated its centenary in 2022.

Notable founding members in 1922 included Jessie M. King, her husband E. A. Taylor, and Chris J. Fergusson. Early members included E.A. Hornel and Charles Oppenheimer. The Scottish Colourist F.C.B. Cadell and Katherine Cameron were also regular exhibitors in the 1920s.

An annual exhibition has been held every year since 1922 with the exception of five years during the Second World War. Centenary year 2022 was marked with special exhibitions in Dumfries and Kirkcudbright.

In addition to a selected annual exhibition, the society arranges other unselected exhibitions at different venues.

The society normally arranges a winter programme of demonstrations and workshops given by professional artists, and a summer programme of workshops in different media. Our members include amateurs of all levels, and non-painters who enjoy the talks and demonstrations, as well as many professional artists.
