Dorking Group of Artists

Congratulations to Paul Simmons who wins The Denbies award October exhibition 2014 for his painting 'Taxi'

Congratulations to Claire Sears who was the winner of the Visitors Vote at
the 2014 Annual Exhibition at Denbies Wine Estate

Thank you for visiting the Dorking Group of Artists’ website.

The year since my election as Chairman of the DGA in November 2013 has flown by, and I am glad to say we have had yet again a fantastic year of weekly activities at Beare Green, a lovely summer programme painting the 'great outdoors', and of course our two very successful exhibitions in May and October.
 
Previously I was Exhibition Secretary for seven years, and  I know many of the members and their work through their submissions to our twice yearly exhibitions. I am looking forward to continuing to maintain the high standards in our exhibitions and the excellent Winter and Summer programmes of weekly events which offer  opportunities for people who want to rekindle their interest in art,  try out different media, or to work ‘en plein air’ in the summer for the first time with a group of like minded friendly people.
 
We hope you find our website informative. We always welcome new members with the new ideas, skills and inspiration that they bring to what is already a progressive, forward thinking Art Group.
 
Our next exhibition of new and original artwork will be held at Betchworth Village Hall, from Friday 1st May to Monday 4th May 2015.
