Gracefield Arts Centre, 28 Edinburgh Road, Dumfries, DG1 1JQ

In order to celebrate our 15th year we are partnering with long-time Spring Fling supporter Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries.

Join us as we showcase works by current and previous Spring Fling participants from private and public collections. This exhibition displays not only a broad example of Spring Fling artists, but also explores where works are now, how they have shaped peoples lives and homes, highlighting the special relationships built between artist and collector. 

“Helen has been a great champion of my work ever since my first Spring Fling. Her enthusiasm and encouragement through the years has been fantastic and she is now a great friend"

   – Clare Dawdry (Studio 41, p38)
