At this year’s Winter Exhibition, for the first time, the club invited the public to cast a vote for their favourite painting on show (similar to the voting which takes place during our Annual Exhibition). The outcome resulted in joint winners. Very well done to Anne Pack for her watercolour “Now you see me” and Jack Pender’s “Poppies / Seascape” in oil. Anne’s winning painting is shown above. We don’t have a picture of Jack’s painting at this time.

An article in the Dunfermline Press from Saturday 23 March 1883 reported “A meeting of gentlemen called together by circular for the purpose of forming a Fine Art Association for the town and district was held in the committee rooms of St. Margaret’s Hall, Dunfermline on 22nd March 1883. As a result of this meeting, The Dunfermline Fine Art Society (now known as Dunfermline Art Club) was formed.
