From Friday (20th November) the club Gallery in the Kingsgate Centre will reopen with a completely new exhibition of paintings. The exhibition will be available to view every Friday and Saturday (12 noon until 4 o’clock) through into next year. Almost all the exhibits are available for sale to the general public. We hope you can manage to visit.
Our 2020 Online Winter Exhibition begins on 1st November and runs throughout the month. Full details an how to access the exhibition along with arrangements for making purchases are contained in the “2020 Online Winter Exhibition” Tab above. As a supplement to this, a selection of the paintings are now featured on a YouTube video produced by Robert Clement. Have a look via the link.

You will be able to go there directly via Dunfermline Art Club on Facebook or via the link on our Tab “2020 Winter Exhibition” on the website. Lots of new paintings will be there, and we hope you’ll be able to find something of interest. Note however that the exhibits can only be viewed on the Facebook platform.
On Thursday 6th November a meeting of the club Committee was held in Pittencrieff Park. The Secretary will provide a copy of the minutes of this meeting to members in due course. A couple of items which members will wish to be aware of at this time are:
- The Winter Exhibition which is usually held in the Kingsgate Centre in November will not take place this year.
- The Annual General Meeting of members which was due to take place towards the end of August has been deferred until a date (yet to be determined) towards the end of November. Accordingly, memberships (which usually expire on 31 August) have been extended until 30th November.
Dorothy Amos has been involved in the refurbishment of the aviary at the Peacock Sanctuary in Pittencrieff Park. Part of this refurbishment includes placement of a peacock sculpture along the main wall accompanied by four large local interest canvasses. Since last summer, Dorothy has been working on these canvasses which are now complete. They feature the Dunfermline Coat of Arms (Crest) and St Margaret. An image inspired by the stained glass window in St Margaret’s Chapel, Edinburgh Castle, King Robert the Bruce and an assortment of animals and birds frequently found in the park (known locally as “The Glen”).
Along with Dorothy, other members of Dunfermline Art Club contributed to the wildlife canvas (known as the Wee Beasties). Names of those club members who contributed will be shown when it is hung in the Aviary
