Welcome to Dunkeld Art Exhibition   06 March 2018

21st June - 30th August 2018

Now in its 48th 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 2017 we sold over 460 pieces of work to the total value of 34,300 and gave a donation of 9,000 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 closes on 30th August, any unsold work must be collected on Saturday/Sunday 1/2nd September from 10-5pm.
