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.
The last venue for our Summer Programme 2021of outdoor painting is on Tuesday 31st August with a 'pub lunch' at the Surrey Oaks pub in Newdigate. We have all enjoyed meeting with fellow members despite the variable weather!
Our weekly meetings at Beare Green Community Centre will begin again on Tuesday 7th September, 10 - 1pm, please see the Winter Programme 2021 page for the weekly subjects. We look forward to seeing members again and resuming some semblance of our usual autumn routine!
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 SUMMER 2021 ONLINE EXHIBITION has been uploaded with new 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!
We hope to see you at our next exhibition at Denbies Vineyard November 1st - 6th 2021, and 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.
