Welcome to the Dorking Group of Artists website.
We welcome everyone of any artistic ability to join a forward thinking and lively group to exchange ideas and skills and meet with like minded and friendly people.
We have had a hugely popular programme of Zoom Demonstrations and lectures/discussions since January 2021, including Hashim Akib, Hester Berry, Valerie Pirlot, Alison Carlier, Tom Shepherd, Ronnie Ireland, Peter Keegan, Jamel Akib, Simon Hodges, Roger Dellar, Jake Winkle and lastly Jem Bowden.
We are hoping to meet as a group for our first plein air session on Tuesday 22nd June from 10am, unless Government guidelines are changed.
Please see our new Summer Programme page for the list of venues from June 22nd.
One of the more positive things to come out of 2020 was our hugely successful ONLINE gallery www.dga.gallery which was set up to run at the same time as our Autumn 2020 Exhibition at Denbies Vineyard. We are delighted to announce that we have had over 3,500 since we set up the DGA Gallery last Summer, and over1500 visitors to our quarterly online exhibitions since January 2021.
Our NEW ONLINE EXHIBITION started in APRIL 2021 with a completely new range of paintings by our popular Exhibiting Members demonstrating a wide variety of subjects, media, styles and of course prices for visitors to the site to purchase!
Sadly our regular Spring Exhibition usually held over the May Bank Holiday, has been cancelled again but until then enjoy this 'mini' show of excellent work by our Exhibiting Members!
Art takes on a completely new dimension and value in such uncertain and troubled times – it brings happiness and possesses the ability to uplift, intrigue and inspire. We therefore hope you will be able to join us in October, whether in person or online.
