Welcome to Dunkeld Art Exhibition 31 January 2019
20th June - 29th August 2019
Now in its 49th year the Dunkeld Art Exhibition has been running for 10 weeks every summer to raise money for the upkeep of Dunkeld Cathedral. Artists from all over the UK show paintings, prints and sculptures and the exhibition attracts some 10,000 visitors each year. Successful artists of varying styles have found it to be a ready market for their works. The exhibition takes a 25% commission from the sales and, as a result, has been able to contribute regularly each year to the Cathedral funds. There is also a one pound hanging fee for each picture accepted. In 2018 we sold over 420 pieces of work to the total value of 35,050 and a donation of 9500 has been given to Cathedral funds. The exhibition takes over the 19th century Gothic Parish Hall, the Duchess Anne, which provides an attractive venue for some 400 works of art at any one time. Dunkeld is a well-known visitor centre and stopping-off point and the grouse and salmon seasons add to the number of interested art lovers. The Duchess Anne is situated in the Cross at the centre of Dunkeld. The exhibition will close on 29th August and any unsold work must be collected on Saturday 31st August or Sunday 1st September.
